Gove kicks off the school year using SWPBIS


BELLE GLADE — At Gove Elementary, teachers use the School Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (SWPBIS) along with CHAMPS classroom management system. Students are presented with a Gove Mascot Paw by teachers when they are caught demonstrating positive behavior around the school. Once the class earns 14 paws the class earns 30 minutes of educational fun. The students earning the most paws in a month are acknowledged by their homeroom teacher by submitting their name to Ms. Michno, the SWPBIS and CHAMPS sponsor. Those students then become a part of the Pawtastic Heroes display board by the cafeteria for all to notice and congratulate. They are also recognized in the Sun News and CAT TALK. Gove thanks Ms. Michno for overseeing such an effective program. Ms. Michno, math coach, SWPBIS and CHAMPS sponsor, motivating the Gove students using SWPBIS.
