Duke Pride Expectations

Lexington Elementary Staff is committed to a positive behavior program where desired behavior is modeled and rewarded. As a staff we try very hard to redirect inappropriate behavior and resolve the situation before it escalates. The students at Lexington Elementary School are participating in a Positive School-Wide Behavior Program which is referred to as our Duke Pride Expectations. This program consists of teaching students school-wide behavior expectations and rewarding those that display good behavior. Students are given a daily stamp for positive behavior to earn an end of the week reward. Please refer to the chart that your child will bring home daily. Parents are expected to initial this chart nightly Monday through Friday. We truly believe that by working together we can make Lexington a place where children want to come and spend their time.
Here are some examples of good behavior.

  • Make good choices
