PAWS (Positive Always ready Working together Safe) supports positive behavior for students in grades K-4.
A student can be nominated by any staff member, not just their teacher. They are nominated by exhibiting positive behavior and helping others.
The students are given a "yellow ticket" for their positive behavior, which they put it in a bucket that Principal Rutten draws from each month. Students get to pick a prize. All prizes are donated by local and area businesses.
