Teacher Comment
   PBIS has truly changed the face of BLMS. This program continues
    to motivate both students and teachers. When you get an
    opportunity to reinforce respect, responsibility, and readiness
    within your students it becomes very self- rewarding. Students at
    this school are taking their own initiative to help one another, clean
    our common areas, and truly respect our BLMS home! I only hope
    that the values that they learn here will be taken with them on
    their journey through high school. The implementation of PBIS has
    created a very positive atmosphere within our school and I believe
    it will only continue to get better!

Classified Staff Comment
   The impact that PBIS has had on me personally is to take the time
    to look for the positive behavior in our students. It's so much
    easier to see the negative or bad behavior in a student.
    Sometimes it takes more time to recognize good behavior but
    most students seem to respond in a positive way when they are
    rewarded for good behavior instead of always being punished for
    bad behavior. It has also helped me to stop and think about what
    may be going on in a student's personal life and that there behavior
    may be a result of those struggles.
