Paw pals (previously known as Peace Pals for returning students) is an acknowledgement given to students. A student may receive a Paw Pal for a variety of reasons. These Paw Pals are tied to our international baccalaureate attributes (3 Rules) of being balanced, caring, and principled. Some schools may refer to these three rules as safe, respectful and responsible. When a student receives a Paw Pal, they are able to turn it into their classroom teacher. Classroom teachers use these acknowledgements to set goals for their classroom for rewards. It is also a way for teachers to track how often they are acknowledging positive behavior in the classroom.
