Postville is a PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) School . Part of PBIS is to celebrate the things that students do right. Throughout the year, the students in the elementary practice The Pirate Way Expectations: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible and can earn Pirate Bars when a staff member sees them following The Pirate Way. At the end of each month, every classroom teacher from Junior Kindergarten through Sixth Grade chooses a Student of the Month based on the students' behaviors and the number of Pirate Bars the students have received. These students are recognized on stage with a certificate and their choice of a pirate bandanna or an eye patch at the Student of the Month Assembly. All of the students' Pirate Bars are put into a gold raffle spinner and at the end of the assembly, Mrs. J Schutte draws random Pirate Bars for students to win a prize. During the month of April, we gave away four bikes as the random prizes.
