School team attends training
The Pine River-Backus Elementary School PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports) team recently completed its last day of training in St. Cloud as part of a two-year implementation grant. The team has been instrumental in developing the ROAR (Responsible, On-Task, Always Safe, and Respectful) schoolwide expectations at PR-B. The program promotes positive recognition of students and staff who display and practice those expectations. Shown are Mike Dinnel, fourth-grade teacher; Paula Schroeder, K-4 YFS worker; Holly Rowell, K-1 teacher; Tena Odens, EBD teacher; Michelle Holden, fourth-grade teacher; and Denise Koring, 5-8 YFS worker.
