Mariposa Monarchs R.U.L.E.

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!  I am looking forward to meeting our new families, who have joined the Mariposa Monarch community.  Be sure to mark your calendars for our Back to School Night, September 28th.  The staff and I are extremely excited for the upcoming year as we continue to implement Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports, (PBIS) again this year.   It is a framework or approach comprised of intervention practices and organizational systems for establishing social culture, learning and teaching environment, and behavior supports needed to achieve academic and social success for all students.  

We have a new motto, with the acronym, R U L E, which actually represents the school’s positive school-wide expectations:

R- Reach for Excellence
U- Use Self Control
L- Learn to Problem Solve
E- Earn Respect 

All Students will be taught each of the expectations in rotations the first week of school,  so they know how to meet them wherever they are on campus.  We want each student, teacher, staff member, and parent to think and act positively about being at school.  When a child is happy, research states that he/she will be more likely to achieve greatness.  That is the true goal of PBIS and our new motto, “Monarchs R U L E with Pride.”  With the use of our revised Monarch Moments, (m & m’s) tickets, staff will acknowledge and reward positive behavior.  Students collect the tickets and keep track of them with the help of their teacher.  Weekly turn-in days occur with the Principal, prizes will be awarded then, as well as, at our monthly Awards Ceremonies.  Some of the prizes include: a custom Mariposa sticker, a  “Lunch License” to sit wherever a student wants for a day, a lunch line “Fast Pass”, which speeds a student to the front of the line, and when a student reaches the goal of 100 tickets, he/she will enjoy a special luncheon with the Principal.  

I have included a copy of our school-wide matrix below, which explains what RULE looks like at all the different locations on campus on the back of this letter.  It highlights the most important behaviors we will focus on for the year.  Please the take time to review it with your child and ask he/she about it.  We have also made it a priority to show off the new motto and our school logo all over campus with banners, posters, and flyers.  We hope you have noticed a few.  It’s going to be a great year.  Remember, Monarchs RULE with Pride!
