Happy Holidays!

This holiday season is unlike any other, to cap off a year unlike any other. Throughout this season, and as we move into a new (and hopefully better) year, we want to extend our deepest thanks for all you do to create more PAX in the world.


May you find peace, productivity, health, and happiness this holiday season and through the coming year.

Even Super PAX Spleems Sometimes

"I am soooo obsessed with Pax & peace that I named my puppy Pax & am using him to help my little Pre-K friends (I’m also the Pre-K teacher) learn about Pax. So we have “Super Pax” whose superpower is spreading peace, Pax who sometimes spleems just like them, & Pax who follows our Covid protocols!"

High School Students Use Tootle Notes Too!

High School students from PPEP Tech High School-Jose Yepez Learning Center in Arizona created this Tootle Note board to recognize PAX behaviors in peers.


Did you know using positive peer reinforcement reduces bullying or other forms of intimidation of others and the lifetime risk of suicide?

Big picture

Increase PAX and Student Engagement with PAX Jobs!

Giving students a meaningful role or classroom job increases engagement, cooperation skills, responsibility, and creates a sense of belonging.


When using student jobs, keep in mind:


  • Use PAX Stix to randomly assign jobs.
  • Post PAX Student Job cards as visual reminder of assigned position.
  • Provide specific instructions for each job and give feedback on performance.
  • Every student should have a job.
  • Many classroom jobs can be performed as a team or with an assistant.
  • Allow students to model or provide "on the job training" to peers.
