Students Brandon Garner, Hunter Riebel and Maliki Pope play Don’t Tip The Waiter during a recent PBIS reward day. The nerve-racking food-stacking game uses strategy, patience and a steady hand.
Volney Elementary School held a PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) Reward Day for students on Jan. 29.
Math teacher Kelly Stadtmiller paints fourth grade student Alexis Bardin’s nails during Volney’s recent PBIS celebration to recognize students for positive behavior. Stadtmiller used a special magnet to create swirled nail art.
The reward day recognized students for being role models of the school’s four behavioral expectations: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe and Be a Problem Solver.
Students in all grades celebrated with activities during the morning, and were dismissed for the afternoon for staff development.
Students could choose from many sessions, including movies, bracelet making, pom-pom critter crafts, dodge ball, karate, board games and string tricks.
At a recent PBIS Reward Day, Volney students were able to choose a fun activity to occupy their morning. Pictured are Mary Jerred, Brianna Murtaugh, Niya Emmons, Gage Zupancic and Lilly Dumas (sitting) enjoying snow cones, pretzels and the movie Snow Buddies.
