Seek the Peak

Safe, Respectful, Responsible: Seek the Peak - PBIS Seek the Peak is a school-wide system intended to create a predictable, positive, safe, and consistent school environment for all students, staff and community members. You may have seen posters in our school or heard your child talk about “Seek the Peak”. This is Crested Butte Community School’s name for our Positive Behavior Intervention/Support (PBIS) program.

 The PBIS program is designed to teach common expectations and rules to all students in a positive way, recognize students for making good choices that demonstrate “seeking the peak”, and positive interventions for students when their choices do not.

During the first week of school, students will move through the “Seek the Peak” rotations to go over routines and expectations in all the various areas of the school. Included in this handbook is a behavior chart that lists those specific expectations. 

Students work with their classmates and teacher to develop a classroom pledge that will reflect the specific values and expectations of the group.

In addition, our school counselor and staff have identified certain character traits that we believe are essential to be successful citizens of our school and community. These “Titan Traits” are taught, discussed and reinforced throughout the year.

We recognize positive behavior choices and acts of kindness and integrity with “Seek the Peak” tickets. There is a weekly drawing for fun prizes like classroom parties, lunch with Bob, etc. In addition, teachers and staff members will identify individual students to receive the “Seek the Peak” award at the end of the year. Though these are external rewards to reinforce positive behavior, we emphasize the importance of “Seeking the Peak”, even when no one is looking, and that the real reward is felt internally.
