Hello Mariposa Families:


Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports, (PBIS) is a framework or approach comprised of intervention practices and organizational systems for establishing a social culture, learning and teaching environment, and behavior supports needed to achieve academic and social success for all students. Our school motto continues with the acronym, SOAR, which actually represents the school’s positive school-wide expectations:


S - Spirit
O - Open-Minded
A - Accountable
R - Respect


All students will be taught each of the expectations with games and lessons in the classroom and/or in rotations during the first several weeks of school.  Students will 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 motto, “Monarchs SOAR.” With the use of our Monarch Moments tickets, staff will acknowledge and reward positive behavior. Students collect the tickets and turn them in for prizes on Fridays at lunch.
