(Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports)
     Dewey Ave. Elementary has implemented a school-wide positive behavior intervention system.    We wish to encourage positive behavior and wise choices by following universal expectations throughout the school.  These positive expectations flow from the classrooms to the hallways, restrooms, cafeteria, playground, and dismissal.  Here at Dewey, our students "FLIP" for positive behavior:

F: Focus
L: Learn
I: Inspire
P: Persevere
