A culture of celebration focuses on structural practices and supports that place an emphasis on the positive climate of the school. Students, families, and staff are expected to celebrate and focus on success at all levels and to hold each other accountable to meet these expectations. The goal is to inspire positive action rather than communicate punitive responses. Students internalize expectations when a variety of achievements are recognized.
Webster Stanley Middle School rewards individual students for improving their behavior. Acknowledgment of struggling students who have changed their behavior fosters a sense of accomplishment and camaraderie for students who in turn encourage their peers to be successful.
