GJHS is a Positive Behavior Support (PBS) School. The goal of PBS is to build positive relationships and to

enhance a positive school environment in order to support student success. School-wide rules and expectations

are clearly defined and discipline is fair and consistent. Our students show TIGER PRIDE in the classroom, as

well as in the halls, in the library, in the cafeteria, on buses, in the offices, and at assemblies, dances, sporting

events and all other school activities on and off campus.

PRIDE is defined as “a sense of one’s own proper dignity or value; self-respect.” Showing TIGER PRIDE


Personal Responsibility-Taking ownership for your actions and their outcomes.

Respect-Demonstrate positive behavior towards yourself and others.

Integrity-Always doing the right thing, even when no one is looking. Doing your own work.

Dedication-Honest commitment to improve yourself, your school and relationships with others.

Empathy-Seeing and accepting others’ situations, feelings, motives and showing compassion for others.

See the matrix at the end of this Student Handbook which gives additional examples of how students at GJHS

show Tiger PRIDE!


Kissing and personal body contact beyond holding hands is not allowed at GJHS. The rule to follow with

body contact is – “If you are holding more than hands, you are holding too much.”


Because of concerns for the safety of the many students who walk on campus, the use of skate boards, roller

skates, roller blades, coasters or similar devices on the GJHS campus is prohibited. This includes riding on

hand rails, stairs, or other parts of any buildings or the campus infrastructure. Students who ride or bring

skateboards, roller skates, roller blades, coasters or similar devices to the GJHS campus are reminded to put

these items away during the school day.

X. SPORTSMANSHIP – It is a privilege, not a right, for students, parents and spectators to attend sporting

events at GJHS. The Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) and GJHS have the following

high expectations for behavior at all GJHS/CHSAA sponsored events.

1. Remember that you are at a contest to support and yell for your team and to enjoy the skill and competition;

not to intimidate or ridicule the other team and its fans.

2. Remember that school athletics are learning experiences for students, and they may make mistakes. Praise

student-athletes in their attempt to improve themselves as students, as athletes, and as individuals.
