Attitude – You are in charge of your attitude each day. You can choose to react to a situation positively or negatively.  The choice is up to you!

Tolerance – The world is made up of all different kinds of people.  Wouldn’t it be a boring place if we were all the same? Strive to respect, accept, and learn from each other!

The CATS Program encompasses a variety of items we already do at Challenger such as using student planners for organization and structure.  Our Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) Committee takes the lead on how to bring our entire community, including students, parents and staff, together.  If you have questions regarding the CATS program or PBIS, please contact our principal, Diane Ryan at 858-586-7001. 

Advisory - This seventeen minute class allows us to take care of school business without impacting instruction time.  PBIS creates character education lessons and ASB sponsors fun school spirit activities during this period.
Quote of the Week - You can be a part of our community by reading the quotation posted on our home page.  It is read to and reflected upon by our advisory classes weekly.  The selected quote often corresponds to the character education lesson. 

CATS Tickets - Students are recognized for behavior which follows the CATS philosophy.  PBIS will draw from names periodically to reward those students with prizes.

Harassment Education Program - All students will attend a presentation the early in the school year about the different kinds of harassment and the ways it can be stopped.
