September Super Cougars

Each month for our PBIS program we pick 1 Super cougar from each classroom- someone who has demonstrated they are being the very best and following Arno’s PBIS expectations of being Respectful, Safe, and Responsible.  This month’s Cougars received a pizza lunch with the principal.  Way to go Cougars!!
