At Aragon Elementary, we believe that students learn best in an encouraging and supportive environment. Appropriate behavior will be encouraged and reinforced consistently in the classroom and throughout the school setting. In addition to frequent verbal praise and encouragement, the Aragon staff will recognize, encourage, and celebrate appropriate behavior.
