Home Depot Supports PSLHS

The PSLHS 9th Grade Academy was awarded a grant from the Home Depot in Ft. Pierce! They supplied us with paint and all the supplies to paint all the classrooms in our academy. They even provided volunteers to help us paint! We also had special guests there to help us. School board member, Troy Ingersoll, and Marty Sanders, the executive director over facilities for our district, came out to help too. We painted 11 classrooms, and we’re looking forward to our next painting day!    

PBIS Mariposa Butterfly Bucks Rock!

At Mariposa Elementary, Butterfly Bucks are used when students are caught doing positive behaviors. When a teacher or administrator catches a student following one of the I CAN expectations, they hand them a butterfly buck and acknowledge the specific behavior the students were caught doing. The students then place them in their butterfly bank similar to the one pictured and save them to spend on special PBIS events or to buy a special item from the PBIS store. I CAN expectations: Act Responsibly Be Respectful Create Safety Do My Best
