MStM Elementary is a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) school. PBIS is an evidence-based three-tiered framework to improve and integrate all of the data systems and practices affecting student outcomes every day. PBIS creates a school environment where all students succeed. Blue Devil SWAG defines ways to “Stay Safe, Work Hard, Act Responsibly, and Give Respect,” at MStM Elementary.
Second Step is a program rooted in social-emotional learning (SEL) that helps transform schools into supportive, successful learning environments uniquely equipped to encourage children to thrive. More than just a classroom curriculum, Second Step’s holistic approach helps create a more empathetic society by providing education to professionals, families, and the larger community with tools to enable them to take an active role in the social-emotional growth and safety of today’s children. MSTM professional school counselor, Cally Speed, leads this learning for staff and students.
