Positive Behavior System:

Lighthouse students are becoming "Lemur Leaders".  The children earn "Lemur Loot" by displaying one of Lighthouse’s BAY Lights:

  • Be Safe
  • Always Respectful
  • You are responsible for your actions

This program supports student learning of the values behind the BAY Lights and establishes intrinsic rewards for positive behavior.  Lighthouse students are safe, respectful, and responsible!
