We will continue to develop and implement our Positive Behavior Supports for all students and adults at Draper.  Our school-wide expectations are that all Draper Dragons are Safe, Kind, and Responsible in all that they say and do.  In addition, Draper Elementary implements Restorative Practices and strives to support student citizenship, leadership, and service learning.
