Haller Middle School students learn school rules during behavior walks
Behavior WalksOn the second day of school, Haller Middle School students took a walk around campus to learn the rules of the school. These “behavior walks” are part of the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) system that the school uses to support the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral needs of all students. This is the second year the school has held these walks.

“This is a lot more engaging than going over the school rules during an assembly or class,” said Haller Principal, Trever Summers. “This also allows teachers to engage their students in learning during class instead of having to go over the school rules.”

Classes went on walks throughout the day to visit different areas of the school, including the bus lane, gym, library, cafeteria, football field, outside courtyard, and hallways and bathrooms. The students learned about expectations in these different areas.

“It’s very hands on and we’ve received positive feedback from teachers and students,” said Summers.

A shorter refresher walk will be held in April after spring break.
