PONTOTOC, Miss. (WTVA) -- Pontotoc Middle School celebrated Thursday its students' first nine weeks of success under the new Positive Behavior Intervention Support guidelines.
The students were given a celebration for their good behavior and for following the PBIS rules.
The school introduced the PBIS system to the students at the beginning of the year along with a challenge.
All students that followed the rules and completed all of their classwork would be invited to the celebration.
The school's principal said she is looking forward to seeing how much of a difference PBIS has made in the school's test scores.
"I'm very excited to see them so excited about their successes," Pontotoc Middle School Principal Gwyn Russell said. "They've worked hard. They have worked together. Teachers have put a lot of time and effort and energy into it."
Russell said the PBIS system is something the school will continue to use.
In fact, she said administrators have already started to plan the next celebration.
