Anderson Elementary School’s Positive Behavior Intervention Systems program is in full swing!
Many new events are happening in order to promote character building, responsibility and civic awareness to our students. This year the fourth-grade teachers nominated students for a Leader-In-Me group. These students were selected for their outstanding behavior in school and the character traits that they exhibit each day as an example of what we would like all of our students to aspire to through PBIS.
Leader-In-Me programs take PBIS a step further and promote leadership, problem solving and group work skills amongst same age peers. The fourth grade group worked on creating, selling and delivering Smile-o-Grams as a PBIS fundraiser. Smile-o-Grams could be purchased for $1 during conferences and are a note to their student delivered to their class for distribution.
The event was a big success with $350 raised for the end of the year PBIS celebration bash. Anderson Principal Doug Mentzer was very pleased with their ability to organize themselves with this project.
“I was very impressed with their hard work, attention to detail, and willingness to see the project through,” Mentzer said.
The fourth grade Leader- In- Me students are:
Mrs. Purdy’s Class: Owen Bainbridge, Brooke Mosley, Rylnn Summers, Gabe Push and Kayla Kirkland.
Mrs. Darnell’s Class: Anais Garcia, Noah Carr, Zack DeLisen, Summer Karn, Malyah Bynum, Drew Martin and Peyton May.
Mrs. Ford’s Class: Trevor Mulford, Emily Howard, Ava Carson, Emma Donovan and
