In an effort to create a school climate of positivity and success, we are building our PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention System) through our PAWS behavior and recognition system. This includes weekly and monthly awards to students for academic, library, music and PE achievement for individuals. Classrooms can also earn awards together for having a clean room, being quiet in the halls, and being exemplary as a class during Music, PE and Library. Classes also earn awards for being present and on time to class each day. We are also starting PAWS tickets for individual students who are caught behaving in a PAWSitive way. Below is our matrix showing the behaviors we want our students to show here at Hammond School.
