We are now in year five of implementing our school wide positive behavior system (PBIS). We are continuing to focus on Who’s Wise Words of kindness, respect, responsibility and safety at school. You may notice Who’s Wise Words posters around the school and may have heard your children talking about “positive pellets”. Positive pellets are distributed by staff in the building when we notice students following one or more of Who’s Wise Words by showing kindness, respect, responsibility, and safety.
Over the summer I was fortunate to join a team from Marion Cross that attended the BEST Institute in Killington to continue building our multi tiered system of supports (MTSS) at MCS. Our focus this summer was on implementing restorative practices within our MTSS framework. A restorative approach involves principle-based processes and practices that can be applied to help things go right as well as respond when things go wrong.
