PBIS Rotation Day

All students and staff participated in PBIS rotations today.  Students followed a rotation where they were reminded of what the expectations are in different areas of the school including: the blacktop during dismissal, the cafeteria, the gym, the playground, the bathrooms, and the hallways.  Students and staff discussed what SOAR behavior looks like in each of those places.  SOAR stands for:
Safety First
Observe the Expectations
Always Be Kind
Respect Yourself and Others

Driggs school will show SOAR behavior each and everyday!  

Thank You Costco!

A HUGE thank you to Costco for donating backpacks to Driggs School.  All students were given a backpack for the 2014-2015 school year!  Thank you Costco!
