In Hancock Middle School, we believe in
keeping things positive! Our students are proud to be Bulldogs
and we are working together to specifically define what this
means. Hancock Middle is in the process of becoming a school
which utilizes Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
What this means is that we are creating common expectations for
teachers and students by reinforcing good behaviors though
incentives and instruction.
When other students see a friend
recognized for great behavior, they tend to want to do the right
thing as well. And, research shows that teaching positively
shapes behavior long-term more than any other method. Go, Dawgs!
