Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS)

MVCS is a POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION SYSTEMS (PBIS) school. PBIS is a positive approach to improve the behavior of students and the climate and culture of the school. MVCS takes a proactive approach to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children. We have implemented a PBIS grogram to teach and reinforce positive skills All students are guided to develop relationships with each other, with their teacher, and with Jesus.

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL)

  • We strive to build a safe, proactive, positive, engaging, supportive, and challenging learning community designed to meet the needs of the Whole Child. Social and emotional learning (SEL) and a growth mindset are central to our efforts. We believe that every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow as individuals. MVCS integrates a social and emotional learning framework that is developmentally appropriate for early learners. We will be actively engaged in social and emotional learning (SEL), modeling, teaching, and practicing positive behaviors, using common language related to school expectations, and providing growth mindset feedback and encouragement.

  • To foster a growth mindset, we intentionally give praise and feedback that focuses on effort, choices, and action (process praise) rather than person praise.

Thats Unexpected

  • Learning Reminders and the use of natural and logical consequences are how we communicate to our student and parents that something "unexpected" has happened. Reminders will include a conversation with the child about what would be an "expected" choice. A reminder may also include a logical consequence that is directly related to an action. For example, if a student does not follow the rule about not climbing up a slide after being given a learning reminder, we may ask the student safely slide down the slide five times to remind them of the expected safety rules. 

  • Our goal for all students is a safe learning community. Examples of a major behavior problem include: non-compliance, fighting, disruption of student's learning, vandalism of school or other student's property, and unsafe behavior. If such behavior happens, a phone call or parent meeting may be scheduled at the teacher's direction.
