PBIS School: We follow the Dolphin Way

  • Here at Don Riggio, all students are held to the following five agreements:


    ATTENTIVE LISTENING: To pay close attention to others’ expression of ideas, opinions and feelings; to check for understanding; and to let others know they have been heard

    APPRECIATION/NO PUT-DOWNS: To treat others kindly; to state appreciation for unique qualities, gifts, skills and contributions; to avoid negative remarks, name-calling, hurtful gestures and behaviors

    RIGHT TO PASS AND TO PARTICIPATE: To have the right to choose when and to what extent one will participate in a group activity; to observe quietly if not participating actively; and to choose whether to offer observations to a group when asked to do so

    MUTUAL RESPECT: To affirm the value and unique qualities of each person; to recognize and appreciate individual and cultural differences; and to offer feedback that encourages growth

    DO YOUR BEST: To show up with your school supplies and commitment to the tasks at hand; to spend each day striving for your personal best in every subject; and to be reflective, taking pride in how you treat others as you set goals for yourself

    And every day, Don Riggio students are reminded to follow THE DOLPHIN WAY:

    • Be Safe
    • Be Respectful
    • Be Responsible 
    • Be Kind
