PAWS and CHAMPS
In our last Beehive, we shared some information regarding PAWS and CHAMPS. As a reminder, PAWS stands for the following:
Work To Do My Best
We use PAWS in the hallways, cafeteria, restrooms, playground, during arrival/dismissal and assemblies. Depending on the location, there are different descriptions for each of the letters in PAWS. For example, to Practice Safety in the hallway, we would use walking feet. These are campus-wide expectations that help all students be successful!
A fun family activity might be to talk through what PAWS would look like in your home. What are different ways your family can Practice Safety, or Show Respect in your home?
When we use common vocabulary between school and home, students are more likely to make connections, retain information and follow through with expectations.
Thank you for your ongoing support!!
Apex is Coming to BCE!!
