The Hiawatha District 426 supports our students through a program called PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention System) which helps to create an environment that is safe and positive for our school community. In efforts to encourage positive choices and behaviors, we reinforce students who meet expectations. Two key ways we reward students are through our Hawk Pride Store and Quarterly Celebrations. Our PBIS team is asking for your help to support this valuable program for our students. This can be done through donations of items or monetary contributions. Some examples of items that could be donated for the Hawk Pride Store are:
