Verona Elementary School has received a classroom grant from the Missouri Retired Teachers Foundation for $500 to help implement the Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) for the first time. The program seeks to create a “culture of kindness and respect,” rewarding positive behavior in lieu of punishment to offer incentive for safe and orderly learning. Funds will help purchase 300 “character shirts” to wear at assemblies, field trip and special activities through the year.
