HOUSTON, Miss. (WTVA) -- It's a job well done for Houston Upper Elementary students.
They are being recognized for good behavior.
School officials say students are making a name for themselves within a program called Positive Behavior Intervention and Support.
The University of Southern Mississippi monitors the progress of students.
They must excel by being responsible, respectful, positive and successful.
"Behavior is a big deal in any school setting so anytime you can improve behavior you are going to improve test scores. You're going to improve moral," Principal John Ellison said.
"The students are responding very well to the program. They enjoy the program. They like to receive tickets and go to the school store. We have it once every two weeks," said teacher Kim Sellers.
Students use their tickets to buy such items as t-shirts and even snacks.
