Welcome to CVE!
Congratulations to our Jaylene C. and Emily T. who represented CVE at the District Spelling Bee, February 5th!
We are very proud of you. Go Bears!
What is the CVE BEAR CODE?
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive systems approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional, and academic success. This year Castro Valley Elementary implemented our school-wide PBIS approach that includes:
- School wide expectations
- Lesson plans to teach behavioral expectations
- Acknowledgment system for appropriate behavior
CVE’s PBIS system identified four explicit behavior expectations for Castro Valley Elementary School known as our school motto:
“The Bear Code”
Engage in learning
Respect Yourself and Others
School-wide lessons for each location will teach students the expected behaviors along with several opportunities to practice and receive clear feedback (positive feedback or corrective feedback). The lesson plans include examples and non-examples for teaching students the Bear Code Expectations. Teachers, yard duty, staff, and administrator will teach the lesson plans throughout the school year. For example, the Cafeteria Booster lesson was taught to the entire school body during our Unity Assembly.
Students are recognized with a “Bear Paw” for following the “Bear Code” expectations. Student Bear Paw tickets are entered in a weekly raffle for a chance to earn a Bear Tag and announced on the intercom each Friday. Students showing exemplarily behavior of following the “Bear Code” will be chosen by their classroom teacher and recognized at the Unity Assembly being the “Bear of the Week”.
