March's Character Trait - Fairness

Throughout the month of March, we will be emphasizing the character trait of fairness.  Some concepts include: Share and be fair, play by the rules, be open minded/listen to others, and don't take advantage of others.


PBIS Valentine's Day Event

Valentine’s Day was especially sweet for Onteora High School students this year, thanks to some special treats sponsored by the school’s PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) team. Chocolate fondue—with bananas, marshmallows, and pretzels for dipping—was served up at lunchtime by food service staff with the assistance of PBIS team members. Love songs filled the air, while students created romantic missives, using craft materials supplied by the team. Pre-made valentines were also available.

INTEGRITY: January's Character Trait

Throughout the month of January, staff and students ponder what integrity means and in what ways they are currently exhibiting the trait. Additionally they consider the impact people with integrity (including themselves) have on their surroundings.

Onteora PBIS is a systems approach aimed to improve school culture for the benefit of creating a positive, respectful and safe educational experience for all students.
