POINT PLEASANT — As the new school year gets underway, a day devoted to team-building exercises and games united students, staff and administration at Point Pleasant Borough High School in an effort to foster a positive and welcoming school environment.
On Monday, Sept. 9, students, faculty and members of the administration came together to launch another year of “Be On Point,” the high school’s Positive Behavior Supports in Schools initiative, which focuses on identifying, recognizing and rewarding positive behaviors demonstrated by students at all grade levels in an effort to enhance the school culture to make it more bonded and inclusive.
The day incorporated many of the usual beginning-of-the-year agenda items with new activities focused on highlighting the school’s three pillars of Respect, Responsibility and Pride.
“I love ‘Be On Point.’ I have been on the committee since I was a freshman and it is super cool,” senior Ben Stefan said.
School spirit was on full display Monday as students donned their class colors; grey for the freshmen, yellow for the sophomores, white for the juniors and black for the seniors.
