Positive Behavior Support

What is PBS?

PBS (Positive Behavior Support) is a school-wide program that promotes positive behaviors in our students.  At Elkhorn, we have adopted GRR expectations to define our positive behaviors and provide a safe learning environment where students are successful.


GRR stands for:

      Go Safely

      Show Respect

      Be Responsible


We use tickets to recognize positive behaviors.  There are 3 types of tickets.



green ticket
Green Tiger Tickets: Students earn green Tiger tickets by following the school-wide expectations.  These tickets can be used to purchase items in the Tiger Store twice a month or purchase activities such as photobooth, feeding the fish, or coffee with Mr. Nelson.

Class Ticket

Blue Class Tickets:

Classrooms earn blue class tickets by students working together as a team to follow school-wide expectations.  For every 25 class tickets earned the students celebrate with fun activities such as eating lunch outside, special science experiments or pajama day.

Focus Month Tickets:

Students earn focus month tickets by being a consistent example of the focus month trait. Each month has a different color ticket and focus trait.  These tickets are worth 5 green tickets when students use them to shop.
