MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) Students at Lincoln Elementary were surprised with a flash mob Friday morning during the school’s red carpet assembly.
As a PBIS school (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports), Lincoln encourages being safe, respectful and responsible. Each month, teachers nominate over twenty students to walk the red carpet.
“As a staff, we were brainstorming ideas to add to our PBIS celebration during these snowy months to spark excitement for our students,” said Joann Roehl, School Counselor. “We thought it would be fun to add an element of surprise and fun to our school-wide celebration.”
School board member and Lincoln community volunteer S.A.M. Steiner offered to choreograph the routine. An instructional video was sent out secretly to invited parents and community members to participate.
“We wanted students to see parents, community members and Lincoln staff having fun together as we work together supporting their success,” said Roehl. “We are very fortunate to have so many community partners like Cornerstone Church who interact with and support our students success in so many different ways. We are all a part of our PBIS team.”
Lincoln recognizes students in other ways by awarding the silver spoon for good cafeteria behavior, a golden plunger for keeping bathrooms clean, and Linc the giant tiger for staff-observed best behavior.
