John D. (Bud) Hawk Elementary has adopted the Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) initiative to establish a proactive approach to behavioral supports and the culture needed for all students to achieve social, emotional, and academic success. 

We create a positive environment for students and staff by establishing a system of school wide expectations, investing in skill development, providing clear consequences, and planned incentives. We aim to recognize and celebrate all students when they are successful and we provide interventions when students need help. 

A key component of student success is to increase mentor relationships. We strive to partner with families through communication and opportunities for active involvement.
