Students at Superior Elementary School dug out their snow boot and sleds for a fun day enjoying the snow. It was all part of the Quarter Celebration where students who receive less than two referrals per quarter get to participate in the fun.

“The students work hard to follow our expectations in the different common areas of the school,” said Elementary Principal, Logan Labbe. “We have observed a significant decrease in behavior referrals since the start of the program.”

It’s all part of the schools Montana Behavior Initiative (MBI) Program through the Montana Office of Public Instruction. The program is a proactive approach in creating behavioral supports and a social culture that establishes social, emotional, and academic success for students.

A classroom in the school is dedicated to behavior intervention called the “Taking Responsibility Classroom”. If a student is referred to that room they sit down with an adult and work on problem solving together.

“This puts the ownership on the student for taking responsibility for their behavior so that it’s less likely to occur a second time,” said Labbe.

The student look forward to the celebrations and don’t know what the event is going to be until the day of the event, “it’s always entertaining as the end of the quarter approaches, hearing the rumors and ideas that arise from the students. We have heard ideas that range from going to the Portland Zoo to snowmobiling in the West End,” said Labbe.

No matter what the celebration is, in the end the program has been working great and it contributes to the positive school culture that Superior School represents.
