Often we focus on changing behavior through discipline. Scott County Middle School is taking a different approach by recognizing positive behavior. I want to thank Jeri Fendley, Dean of Students at Scott County Middle School, for sharing the post below.
We all love to be praised by someone. Scott County Middle teachers have taken on a Positive Note to help build relationships with students and parents. Each teacher chooses five students in their homeroom class to send a positive(praise) note home to the parents. Teachers do this once a month until every child in their homeroom has received a positive note. The feedback we have received from parents has been incredible. Students even comment about the note to their teachers. It’s all a part of building relationships with students.
