Ben Franklin PRIDE

Ben Franklin Pride

Meeting the social-emotional needs of all children is also a priority. To support this endeavor, we use the acronym PRIDE: Purpose, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Empathy.  Through regular lessons, conversations, and learning opportunities, our staff instills these characteristics in each child.  We “pride” ourselves on the fact that the adults on campus model these behaviors each day and support every student in developing them as well.  These characteristics aid in creating an environment of social growth, safe learning, and virtuous citizens.  We utilize the PBIS rewards system to recognize student's positive behavior as well as a for data tracking to improve our systems. Students earn points for showing the PRIDE skills around campus and can spend points in the PBIS Rewards store.  Sample items in the store include homework passes, popsicle, a special seat in class, a game with the office staff, and even Pizza with the Principal.  Ask your child what they'd like to earn!
