  • January PBIS Assembly

    Posted by Mike Resh on 1/10/2023 9:00:00 AM

    LPC recently held our January PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) reward and teaching assembly for our students. During this assembly, Mr. Resh (LPC School Counselor) discussed the importance of showing respect to our school, our classmates/staff, and for students to learn how to respect themselves. Students also learned another helpful “tool” for their Zones of Regulation Tool Box. 

    A fun teachers vs. students game of “Castle Ball” followed the presentation to reward specific students for their hard work and “Bucket Filling” behaviors during the month of December.
