Farnsworth Sixth Graders Groove with PBIS
Music was pumping through the speakers in Farnsworth Middle School’s cafeteria as sixth graders enjoyed a ten-minute extension to their lunch period as a reward for positive behavior. The reward is part of Farnsworth’s implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program.
Each month a school committee reviews the most current data on office referrals and plans a monthly challenge related to the behavioral needs across the building. February’s challenge was to be the grade level to earn the most Panther Points of Pride cards, which are given to students to acknowledge desirable behaviors. Sixth graders won this challenge and were given a chance to celebrate.
