RUMFORD —The Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) Team recognized Mountain Valley High School students for their positive behaviors at a schoolwide assembly.

Team member and freshman academy teacher Marsha Burns explained, “At MVHS, we have four keys to success – be safe, be respectful, be responsible and be involved. These students have demonstrated through their actions that they understand these behavior traits. They earned more than three blue cards during the trimester.”

She called the students to the stage: freshmen Rebecca Hastings Isaac Hill, and Quentin Kelley; sophomores Jesse Moniz and Rebecca Roy; and juniors Troy Cochran, J.T. Greene, Ronald Russell and Ashlynn Young.

For their positive behavior, each student received a $5 gifts.

Blue cards are the way teachers at MVHS recognize students for positive behaviors. For example, teachers may send a blue card home when a student helps another student or when a student makes a choice to support a positive school climate.

Then Burns announced 10 randomly-drawn students from among those who received at least one blue card.

They included juniors Karissa Bickford, Maria Drew, Cierra Gannon and Josh Kelley; sophomores Tucker Chute and Julia Perry; and freshmen Madison Heinzen, Cam Mason, Nick Perrault and Julia Sirois. The second group of students received free pan pizzas.

In addition to Burns, members of the PBIS team include librarian Mary Gamble, guidance secretary Debi Briggs, school psychologist Monica Chenard and assistant principal Al Cayer. Michael Phelps, who works for the Fitch Co., is a community member on the team.
