Our mission is to promote positive behavior among students and enhance their self esteem, while giving guidance, support and direction. We counsel, build relationships, and redirect negative student behaviors towards positive goals. Our reward system is simple: students who earn 70-100% of possible points get to participate. The reward programs include: pizza parties, dress downs, extra-curriculal gym activities, field trips, and other specials. Other programs, such as panther bucks and snack shack dollars, are offered to all students on a daily basis.I'm glad I was taught by a squaresville school system that prioritized the three Rs over self-esteem.
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
