Independence Elementary honors students’ behavior

Independence Elementary School officials named students as the “Biggest Fish” for following the Positive Behavior Intervention and Support program.

Eliska Trobona, a third-grader at the school, followed the program expectations throughout the school year, school officials said.

To determine the biggest fish, teachers tallied the number of coins students received throughout the year. Students received coins when they demonstrated the program’s expectations, which are be there, participate, choose a positive attitude and make someone’s day.

Eliska earned the most coins.

Timothy Jackson’s third-grade homeroom class collected the most coins, 5,100. The students received the “Big Bass” class trophy.
