New "ROAR" Program
All of the staff at Banyan will be teaching their students the positive behaviors they are expected to demonstrate at school. We will acknowledge and reward individual students and classes who consistently demonstrate these positive behaviors. Please take some time to review with your child the positive behavior expectations on the ROAR matrix. Ask your child to make sure he/she understands the expectations in different locations around the school or on the bus. Please discuss the importance of these concepts and encourage your child to ROAR with pride this year!
