PBIS & PAWS EXPECTATIONS
Willow is proud to be a PBIS school! PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports) is a framework that guides best practices for academic and behavior outcomes for students. Expectations for student behavior are clear. Willow has FOUR school-wide expectations called “PAWS”: Practice safety, Accept Responsibility, Work Hard and Show Respect. Students follow the expectations that are outlined in our Willow WISE “PAWS” Matrix. We also encourage students to be Willow “WISE” – “We’re Inspired to Succeed Every day!” Students learn skills such as conflict resolution through class discussions/lessons, the STAR Program provided by the Lakewood Sheriff, Peacebuilders curriculum/pledge, services provided by the Wellness Coordinator, and assemblies and discipline review meetings with the principal.
