While our school mascot is the panther, our positive behavior support acronym is P.A.W.S. -
Positive Attitudes Worth Sharing. It is a kind of "caught you being good", with a focus on doing random kind things for others when the opportunity arrises. Stucents receive a small paw print sticker, which they can then come to the office to share their kind act with a staff member and receive a pencil as well.
It is amazing to see Middle School aged kids respond.
Whenever I tell anyone I work in a Middle School they smile, I share that we have the kind of school community and culture in which kids routinely hold the door open for anyone, say good morning when greeted and pick up papers and dropped things. How a many places can say that!
