    Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a positive, predictable, and proactive approach toward school-wide behavior management. The staff at Marcus Whitman are trained in using PBIS strategies to develop positive relationships with students, use proactive planning to help prevent problems before they occur, and implementing systems to deal with misbehaviors in a predictable and consistent manner.

    The elementary years bring exciting new challenges and opportunities. It’s the prime time to nurture social and emotional awareness and skills for learning. The research-based Second Step curriculum program includes everything needed to make it easy for teachers to integrate social-emotional learning into their classrooms, which decreases problem behaviors and increases whole-school success by promoting self-regulation, safety, and support. Social-emotional skills—like math skills—build on each other. Our universal, classroom-based program is designed to teach children how to understand and manage their emotions, control their reactions, be aware of others’ feelings, and have the skills to problem-solve and make responsible decisions.
