Lake Garda School is one of two elementary schools located in Regional School District #10 which serves the Connecticut towns of Burlington and Harwinton.  We have approximately 450 students and 75 full and part time staff.  We are a proud PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) school that recognizes its students for displaying appropriate behavior.  Lake Garda School has three schoolwide behavioral expectations:

  • Respectful – students should treat others as they wish to be treated
  • Responsible – students should make positive choices
  • Friendly – students should be welcoming

Students earn ‘Dolphin Dollars’ for displaying expected behaviors.  The Dolphin Dollars are counted and totaled each week.  Once the goal is reached, the entire school earns a reward.  Some of the rewards that have been earned in the past include:  extra recess, crazy hat and wig day, game day and a dance party.  We are proud of our students!
