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!

Parents:

Do you need to see the Principal or speak with your child’s teacher? Please call first, or stop in the office. Going directly to your child’s classroom can be very disruptive to daily instruction. It also doesn’t allow you or the teacher the time you may need to discuss matters.
