Students at Memorial Junior High were rewarded once again for meeting the PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention System) goals with an opportunity to cheer on fellow students as they played staff members in a fun and light hearted basketball game in the Main Gym on Friday, March 10th. The PBIS program is designed to model and reinforce positive behavior by setting quarterly goals and rewarding those students who meet the goal’s requirements. All students who met the behavior incentives for the third quarter participated in the PBIS event. This month’s PBIS theme was “Accountability is Key,” which focuses on the importance of taking responsibility for one’s actions and following through to be a positive example for others around you.
The PBIS event featured a DJ to liven up the event as well as a raffle where students could win gift cards, hats, jackets, lunch boxes and CAVS gear donated by Proforma and other local businesses. The basketball game was filled with excitement and energy as students and teachers went head to head on the court. Mr. Morris Ervin served as the in-game announcer, while Brush High School Varsity Boys Basketball coach Chet Mason had the opportunity to get involved and rally behind the students as their head coach. What a great opportunity for all Memorial staff and students to be a part of! Stay tuned for future updates on PBIS events at Memorial.
