Students are often only called down the see "the principal" when things are going badly. When I became an assistant administrator, it was important that I could also call a student down for THE GOOD things they are doing! That's when the "Fist Bump" was born. At our school, we call it the "Baron Fist Bump" ---> but your school can insert their own mascot name, or just call it a Fist Bump!
Positive Office Referrals give teachers and staff the opportunity to celebrate something good a student does. Our teachers place the positive office referrals in a box and at our weekly office meetings, we read them out loud and designate an administrator or guidance counselor to call the student down and CELEBRATE! The student is then photographed (with permission) and celebrated on social media. We send home a letter and the Fist Bump to parents and make a BIG DEAL about THE GOOD.
