Each day building staff teach and reinforce the school wide expectation. Through a building wide focus on PBIS we develop positive student behavior through instruction, incentives, and regular practice.
The Elementary Schools the school-wide behavioral expectations are as follows:
I am Safe…
I am Kind…
I am Responsible…
During school, MTHCS elementary students are taught our school-wide expectations for all areas of the school. The classroom, restroom, cafeteria, hallways, bus, computer lab, media center, playground and at assemblies are all settings where students are taught to act in a safe, kind and responsible way. Through direct instruction students are taught what “it looks and sounds like” to be safe, kind and responsible at school.
