SMT Students: Hear them ROAR!
St. Martin of Tours uses mascot, Marty the Lion, as the basis for their PBIS model. Our St. Martin of Tours students use ROAR (Reasonable, Original, Able, and Resilient) to serve as a model for making good choices. Students can earn Marty tickets when they make positive choices, and each Friday they can draw tickets to determine who gets to go pick a prize in Marty's Den.

Way to go!
