Park celebrates positive school year

Printer-friendly version

It's been an amazing year for behavior at Park and things were capped off last week with a Positive Behavorial Interventions and Support (PBIS) all-school assembly.

Principal Monica Schommer announced that a record 1,554 Paws, which are given to students for doing the right thing, were distributed this year. That exceeded the school's goal of 1,500 Paws to be distributed. Teachers nominate students for the awards.

The students earned the all-school celebration for following the Be Expectations program. Culver's in Cross Plains donated frozen custard for the celebration.

"The event was a huge success. The students have done  a great job being respecting, responsible and safe -- so they could all be learners,'' first-grade teacher Nicole Kartman said.

More than 300 students participated in the program.

"The students are very aware of the expectations at Park School,'' Kartman said. "If you asked a kindergartner or a fourth-grader you would hear the four expectations: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe -- so you can Be a Learner!''
