Celebrating the positive

Everyone remembers getting called to the principal’s office as a child; most of the time, it was not for the best of reasons. But at Nottoway Elementary School, students get excited about being called down to the principal’s office when they receive a Positive Behavior Referral. This year, Positive Behavior Referrals are extra special, because students caught doing something good get a unique coin to use in the book vending machine. The very first Positive Behavior Referral of the 2021-2022 school year was Harper Bryant. Harper was written up for exemplifying role model behavior in the classroom and always being prepared to learn.
