    In the first week of school, all teachers will be reviewing with their students behavior expectations in the classroom setting.  At Mohave, we ask students to practice their PAWS.  Practice respect, Accept responsibility, Work together, Safety matters.  In the virtual classroom, we expect students to conduct themselves in a manner that allows everyone to learn and participate.  We follow Positive Behavior and Intervention Supports or a PBIS approach to setting expectations.
