Be Safe, Be Ready, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible
“If it’s best for kids we do it!” This isn’t just a fancy catch phrase you will see posted on the wall or embroidered on a shirt, it’s an every day mission and act you will see of the staff at Donald H. Eichhorn Middle School in the Lewisburg School District.From the moment you walk into the school, the atmosphere is like nothing you have experienced anywhere else. The walls are adorned with the expectations of Be Safe, Be Ready, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible. These expectations are valued and taught just like reading, math, and science lessons. Students and staff alike practice what they preach. You can feel the sense of responsibility everyone feels for the students. They are everyone’s kids; it is everyone’s responsibility to help them succeed.

It is incredible how effective the implementation of School-Wide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS) has been for both students and staff within the building. SWPBS has not just been another “thing” on their plate; it is what separates them from most others. A team of staff including teachers, support personnel, and the principal, have dedicated countless hours, days, and weeks to ensuring that their mission to their students becomes a reality. PaTTAN has provided consultation and training for SWPBS.At first glance SWPBS seems to be second nature to most everyone at Eichhorn, but the reality is it was a process and it always will be. With the overwhelming support of a dedicated, determined administrator and staff that value the impact of recognizing students’ efforts, Donald H. Eichhorn Middle School has set the bar high and a standard for all to strive to achieve. School Wide Positive Behavior Support truly is best for kids, and the staff at Donald H. Eichhorn Middle School DO IT!
