Positive Behavior Interventions and Support

What will PBIS look like at Claudine Brown Elementary School?

We will be using four consistent school expectations:

R-Responsible Choices, O-Outstanding Effort, A-Achieve your best, R-Respect All


Claudine Brown Cougars ROAR for Success!

The Claudine Brown Pledge is:

“With these hands, with this heart, with this mind, I can do anything,

because if my mind can conceive it, my heart will believe it,

I will certainly achieve it. Derek Vitatoe
