Sterling Elementary School sixth-graders Kayla Hemphill, left, and Levi Hensley, along with volunteer Latricia Katzenberger, tie-dye shirts in the school gymnasium on Thursday.

The school utilizes a Positive Behavior Support system, according to Sterling Principal Christine Ermold.

Rather than focusing on giving students a list of what they can't do and then catching students breaking rules and punishing them, Ermold said the school focuses on teaching students what behavior expectations in each setting are, and then focusing on opportunities to recognize them for doing the right thing.
