Kenston Schools is proud to recognize Timmons Elementary as a recipient of the Ohio PBIS BRONZE Recognition Award by the Ohio Department of Education. The Ohio Department of Education recognizes districts and schools for their commitment to Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS is a broad range of systemic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes in school communities while preventing problem behavior.
At Timmons, they focus on the mantra- “How can you be a Timmons Hero each day?” Our students are recognized for their positive choices and behavior through personal recognition, Shout Outs, positive phone calls home, lunch with the principal, and classroom rewards. Clear expectations are explicitly taught, and our PEAK traits are critical to our daily practices.
Members of the Timmons Faculty who have made significant contributions to our PEAK committee and specifically to our system of PBIS at Timmons have worked tirelessly to improve our approach and are currently working towards our application for SILVER recognition, to be submitted at the end of this school year. We commend: (back row, l-r) Carolyn Rolf, Kristen Hasenohrl, Tyler Best, Patrick Aurand, Amy Sparks, Christina Byrne and Dave Rogaliner; (middle row, l-r) Rachel Carter, Eileen Kubas, Holly Gedeon, Lynette Hairston and Jacqueline Vanek; (front row, l-r) Mary Trimm and Sarah Malloy.
