Okapilco Elementary School is implementing a new program called Positive Behavior Interventions and Support. The program aims to increase academic learning time, decrease discipline issues, and increase the school climate.
Okapilco has three expectations for students which are: I am respectful, I am responsible, and I am ready. Faculty and staff are teaching and modeling these expectations and rewarding students who display these behaviors through the student incentive program called “S.W.A.G," which is an acronym for “Students Who Achieve Greatness!” During the first week of school, students learned all about what it means to demonstrate being respectful.
An all-student assembly was held where the character “SWAG Man” played by Assistant Principal Brian Knighton, and the “SWAG Soul Band,” played Mack Beck, Val Bell, Leah Fields, and Ann Smith the “SWAG” team reinforced the week’s expectation of being respectful.
