Gilles-Sweet Receives Bronze Recognition at Ohio PBIS Showcase
This week our Gilles-Sweet staff received the Bronze Award at the State PBIS Recognition Showcase in Dayton for their efforts in implementing the successful #WarriorPride PBIS program at the elementary level.

Representing Gilles-Sweet was (above, from left to right) Associate Principal Matt Krivak, Principal Barb Brady, School Counselor Meredith Schulte, and Fourth Grade Teacher Nicole Pruente.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive framework of evidence-based strategies and systems that assist schools in creating environments that are predictable, consistent, positive and safe. Benefits include improving academic performance and safety, decreasing challenging behaviors, and establishing a positive school climate for students and staff.

Congratulations, Gilles-Sweet!
