Instead of hitting the books Friday, Lewis Elementary School students could be found just “kickin’ it.”
A total of 331 students participated in Kickin’ It With Good Behavior, a reward they received for being good during the school’s second grading period.
“This year, Lewis Elementary has implemented a new program called, PBS, Positive Behavior Support, in which students obtain PAWS tickets for good behavior from teachers, administrators, and staff members,” wrote Tiffany Sperry in an announcement on Temple Terrace Patch. “Students are able to spend their tickets on school-wide prizes or save them for a big event.”
Students needed 40 tickets for Kickin’ It With Good Behavior. Mrs. Garris, a first-grade teacher and fitness instructor, and Ms. Meyerson, a fifth-grade teacher, led students in a 15-minute kickboxing demonstration to music.
“Our assistant principal, Mrs. Rabeiro is very excited about this program and states, ‘Our students are taking pride in making good behavior choices!’” Sperry wrote. “Great job students!”
