At SMS we strive to help guide our students and give them a whole and inclusive education. To help in our efforts, we use positive reinforcement by incorporating Positive Behavior Intervention Supports, or a PBIS model where we hand out MAD (Making a Difference) money to students for behaving and doing what they are asked to do. The students are then allowed to spend their money for movie days, monthly prizes, and end of the year drawings for things like televisions and tablets. The PBIS model just reinforces the kinds of things we want to see out of our students, and helps to remind them to be cognizant of their behavior while at school or during school functions.
