Book Character Dress Up Day

We will continue our traditional Book Character Dress Up Day on Friday, October 30. Students at Duncan Creek are allowed to wear a costume as long as it represents a character from a book or a historical figure. The ticket to wearing a costume is to complete a written assignment from the book. The teacher will determine the assignment.

Some guidelines for costumes are:

-no masks

-no weapons

-no all over face paint

-no dyed hair

Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS)

What is PBIS? The underlying theme of PBIS is teaching behavioral expectations in the same manner as any core curriculum subject.
