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, 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 with games and lessons in the classroom and/or in rotations 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 R U L E with Kindness.” With the use of our 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 and his/her "tracker page."  Weekly turn-in days occur with the Principal, and prizes will be awarded weekly and each month at Awards Ceremonies. Some of the prizes include: a custom Mariposa sticker, a “Lunch License” to sit wherever a student wants for one 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.
