Six Cobb schools featured on the Metro RESA PBIS Showcase.
On Tuesday, March 3, over 100 educators from around the state of Georgia attended the 2ndannual MRESA PBIS Showcase featuring Daniell Middle, Dickerson Middle, Griffin Middle, Nickajack Elementary, Palmer Middle, and Sedalia Park Elementary.
These schools were chosen as demonstration Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) schools because of their 5 Star School Climate Rating with the Georgia Department of Education. Each school shared their PBIS implementation journey through student and staff led presentations, school tours, question and answer discussions, and take-home resources for each of the participants.
At Daniell Middle School, students from the principal advisory board escorted attendees through the halls and made presentations along with staff members about how Junior Jackets SWARM (Show positive leadership, Work hard, Accept accountability, Respect others, Make good choices). Participants were welcomed at Dickerson Middle School by a student string ensemble and observed classrooms engaged in the “DMS Challenge” which teaches students how to be Proactive, Empathetic, Active Learners who are Self-Aware and Reflective. Students, staff, and parents showed guests how to “Be Great, Be Griffin” at Griffin Middle School with student musicians welcoming guests and presentations and tours led by staff and students. Nickajack Elementary welcomed visitors with staff and student council-led tours and serenaded them with their B3 (“Be a Better Brave”) song. AVID Ambassadors and staff at Palmer Middle School escorted participants through the halls to showcase being Respectful, Responsible, Achievers, and a Solution. And third graders from Sedalia Park welcomed guests and various staff members provided video testimonials about how being Ready, Respectful, and Responsible has impacted their school in a positive way.
We are so proud that MRESA chose to highlight Cobb out of the ten metro districts implementing PBIS. And, we are proud of these six schools who truly showcased their commitment to creating a positive learning environment for all students.
