Venado offers a safe and nurturing environment in which to learn. As a Positive Behavior and Supports (PBIS) school, it is important to teach the expected behaviors and define our Venado school culture from day one: Honest, On-time, Noble, On-task, and Respectful and Responsible (HONOR). Students will learn to demonstrate appropriate positive behaviors throughout our campus, including in classrooms, the Library, the Commons, hallways, lunch area, and restrooms. Positive behavior is acknowledged and shaped systematically through the use of HONOR Cards, weekly prize drawings, and other incentives. Students are expected to follow the HONOR Code not only at school, but in the home and community. Our Expect Respect Program, which is part of our PBIS program, promotes respectful communication and interaction among students and teaches safe and pro-social ways of dealing with disrespect.
