Pelican school receives recognition
Recently, a team of staff from Pelican Elementary School traveled to the 2014 PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) Leadership Conference. The PBIS program focuses on behavior as part of a larger state wide educational collaboration.
Staff attended seminars and listened to speakers, and left with ideas to implement when they returned to school. Kindergarten teacher Katie Andrastek said, “I was able to bring back and share with the rest of the Pelican staff in a presentation on one of our inservice days.” Earlier in the year, Pelican was chosen as a PBIS School of Merit, based on the PBIS initiatives and several other criteria. On the first day of the conference there was an award ceremony where all Schools of Merit and Schools of Distinction were recognized and presented a banner.
