All About Bear Dens


Welcome to the Home of the Black’s Mill Bears!

What is a Black’s Mill B.E.A.R.?

B.E.A.R. is our PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention System) initiative for Black’s Mill Elementary. Through PBIS, we build a strong sense of community between our student body and our Black’s Mill Family by modeling our BEAR expectations and showing positive character education traits. 

Each member of our Black’s Mill student body and faculty are randomly assigned to a BEAR Den Family.  Several times throughout the year, the school will host a Den Lunch where the BEAR dens get to eat together as a group. Throughout the year, the students and staff will participate in Den meetings to promote positive B.E.A.R. expectations and character education traits. This initiative also encourages community services projects that the school participates in.

Our BEARs have expectations throughout the school. Whether we are in a classroom, the library, an assembly, or the art room we strive to show BEAR behavior! Paw points are given to students and staff for showing our BEAR expectations.
