Star Journal report
Rhinelander High School freshman Makayla Koser was the big winner today at Mike Webster stadium as her key opened the door to 2006 Chevy HHR. The car was donated by Rhinelander GM and refurbished by RHS students through donations by various local businesses.
This is the fourth year the RHS Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports team has given a car away as an behavior incentive to students. For every good deed witnessed by a teacher, a card with the students name is added to a box. At the end of the year, seven lucky students are given a key that may open the car door.
As exciting as it is to win, Koser said she already owns a car and will likely sell the HHR.
PBIS is a program that focuses on collecting and analyzing data on student behaviors, in order to encourage a school environment of respect and rapport, and to reinforce the positive behaviors demonstrated by students.
Many students won prizes donated by Rhinelander businesses.
Without their past and continued support, these giveaways would not be possible. Representatives from the following businesses were invited to attend in acknowledgment of their ongoing support:
Rhinelander GM, East Side Automotive, Rhinelander Detail Pros, Sounds and Motion, Domino’s and Northstar Steel Fabrication.
