PBS (Positive Behavior Support) is successfully implemented school wide, which set behavioral expectations for students. These expectations are Act responsibly, Be honest,Choose safety first, and Show respect. When students are seen demonstrating these behaviors, they are rewarded with Paw Bucks. With these Paw Bucks students are able to use their tickets to purchase reward days, and twice a year they can purchase items from the Paw Mart Store.
