Dear Mendoza Family,

We are excited to announce our behavior program for Mendoza Elementary School, known as P.A.W.S.  It is a positive way to deal with students’ behavior.  Most of our students consistently make good choices.  Our P.A.W.S. program is a way for these children to be recognized and rewarded for making good behavior decisions.

LogoP.A.W.S. is an acronym for Polite and Respectful, Accountable, Well Prepared, and Safe. As a staff, we will be working with our children to teach them the expectations for what it means to be a P.A.W.S. student during our first few days of school and throughout the year.  Please post the positive behavior guidelines in your home to be reviewed from time to time.  Thank you in advance for your support.  Our P.A.W.S. program will be successful with parents, students, and teachers all on the same team. Understanding and applying appropriate behavior is an essential part of every school and learning environment.  We appreciate your collaboration and look forward to you becoming a member of TEAM PAWS.  With every ones support we will all be able to ensure that you child(ren) will have a happy and successful year.


The Mendoza Staff
