PBIS Implementation

The PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) team has slowly rolled out the program to great success.  We have addressed assembly, bathroom, and hallway behavior.  Students are earning Marvin Star cards and we will be holding our first school wide celebration - a dance party on Tuesday, June 13th.  The students are doing a fantastic job on the leadership of the staff and the PBIS team!!!

Enjoy your summer!  We look forward to another great school year!! 

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have during the summer.
