Harriet Gifford is proud to be a PBIS School. All of our student expectations center around three tenents:
- Be Respectful
- Be Responsible
- Be Safe
Staff and students have developed a Matrix of expectations that is posted in every classroom. Students have opportunities to earn individual Bear Paws in recognition of their getting caught folowing one of the three basic rules. These Bear Paws can be cashed in at the Bearzilla PBIS Store, operated by our Parent Involvement Committee. Students can also help earn their class a Class Bear Paw. It is a recognition from a faculty member (not their own teacher) who notices outstanding classroom effort in a variety of ways. Class Bear Paws are accumulated by the class to earn a class reward, determined by the class.
