Hey there bookworms! Today, we’ve got a tale of positive vibes, recognition, and the ‘Wildcat Way.’ The Ohio Department of Education (DOE) is giving Struthers City Schools a standing ovation for their top-notch PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports Systems) initiatives.

Struthers City Schools And The Wildcat Way

Sarah Herrholtz, the student achievement director and PBIS guru at Struthers City Schools, explains that the Wildcat Way is all about fostering a positive school culture. That’s sounds like an ongoing party of kindness and good behavior!

PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports Systems. That means, it’s a three-tiered framework that creates a positive environment while providing students with the support they need. So, are you ready to hear the best part? Teachers at Struthers are able to recognize students for their responsible behavior. Then they reward students with a token.

So, “Wildcat Win” tokens get handed out each week. Students can exchange their token for a book from Inchy’s Bookworm Vending Machine. Yes, you heard that right. This vending machine dispenses books!

Struthers City School Rocks the Bronze Recognition Award

Struthers City School’s PBIS game is so strong they’ve recieved the Bronze Recognition Award from the state of Ohio. That’s like winning a gold star for spreading positivity. Talk about setting an example for other schools. But it’s not just about awards; it’s about the Wildcat Way becoming a way of life for everyone at Struthers.

Herrholtz adds that the PBIS team is the real MVP. They are continuously finding ways to infuse the Wildcat Way into the school’s DNA. Whether it’s the Big-Cat-Little-Cat Mentorship Program, “Wildcat Wednesday” themed programming, or fun campaigns like the Stay in the Game Attendance Awareness initiative, they’re all about making school a happier place.
