He asked teachers to nominate students they saw going “above and beyond” with good deeds, grades, attendance and citizenship toward other students. Robbins received 57 names from staff members describing positive behaviors like helping fellow students with projects, picking up trash in the hallway, holding doors for others and in general, just being nice to other students.
Those students were rewarded with an ice cream social last week.
Positive behavior will continue to be rewarded on a regular basis, and students are also encouraged to refer other students if they see them exhibiting positive behavior.
“About 10 percent of the referrals had to do with grades; the majority of the referrals were for attitude,” Robbins told those students who were recognized. “You are what we want to encourage here at HCHS. Thank you for being a positive influence on your school.”
