Gilbert Arts Academy recently introduced our new Be a Star (BAS) behavior program during Flag Ceremony on February 29th. This is a school-wide Positive Behavior Intervention Support program encouraging students to be Safe, Kind and Responsible in their words and actions.
Proper, responsible behavior is very important to creating a successful and safe learning environment for everyone. We will stress the importance of following rules and being kind to one another. The color chart below is currently in use school-wide (classrooms, multi-purpose room, art and music room, bathroom, dismissal area, office, library and computer lab) Ultimately, children should strive to be on Green or Purple!
