Crawford Elementary has now joined many other schools in using the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBiS) program to encourage our students in demonstrating positive behaviors and to reward them for their good choices. PBiS is a pro-active, researched based, school-wide systems approach of positive behavior supports. When paired with effective instructional strategies, PBiS sets the stage for student success and achievement.
Since the school mascot of Crawford is the Cougar, the staff created an outline of expectations based on the word ROAR - Respect Ownership, Acceptance, and Responsibility.
Cougar paws are awarded randomly to students for demonstrating the positive behaviors, ROAR. Students will have a cougar paw taped on their shirts so you know when your child has received a Cougar Paw. Every Friday we will have a drawing for Cougar Paw Winners who will receive a small prize. Cougars Roar with Pride!!
THE GIANT COUGAR PAW
Every week classroom teachers count their Cougar Paws and send the number of Cougar Paws they have down to the office. The office staff writes down the totals. The class with the most Cougar Paws for their grade will get to take with them a Giant Cougar Paw, like the one in the attached picture. There is one for each grade K-5. The classes are asked to carry this Cougar Paw with pride as they go from place to place in the building (example: specials, lunch, etc.)
