Philip G. Coburn Elementary School


Our Philosophy - The Coburn Way

Have you heard your child talk about the Coburn Way? If not, ask them. They will tell you about the 3 values that we live by at Coburn: Kindness, Respect, and Responsibility. Students are given "Coburn Coupons" and classrooms "Coburn Paws" when they show kindness, responsibility, and/or safety. Students are able to use their coupons in their classroom school store and classrooms are able to participate in special events when they have met their class "paw" goal.
