SURFS Up at Macdonough School
Teaching behavioral expectations and rewarding students for following them is the focus for our school-wide positive behavioral support program. Through the acronym SURFS, students and staff have a common understanding of expectations for behavior in a variety of settings.
We believe that introducing, modeling, and reinforcing positive social behavior is an important part of a student’s educational experience.
Each month at Macdonough School, students who demonstrate SURFS behaviors are formally recognized at school-wide SURFS Up Celebrations. Families are invited to share in the celebration in recognition of their role in raising children who make appropriate academic and social behavioral choices.
