2020-2021 PBiS Goal

Did you know that as of April 9, 2021, 87% of our students have one or fewer behavior referrals? 348 out of our 400 students have received one or fewer behavior referrals for discipline thanks to our school-wide support and commitment to PBiS (Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports)! Our students are making great choices and learning quickly to avoid repeating bad ones!

Our overall goal is to have 85% or more of our kids receive one or fewer minor/major behavior referrals this school year. We are on track to meet that ambitious and worthwhile goal!

PBiS Participant Recognition

Congratulations to the staff of MES on completing all the requirements to be considered a “PA PBS Network Participating Site” during the 2020-2021 school year. This school year is like no other and so the network adjusted requirements to their “Recognition” system. This year we have successfully met the criteria of 'Participating' and next year we will pick back up with where our 2019-2020 Tier 1 & 2 PBiS status left off.


Q3 Report Cards

Report cards will come home with students on Wednesday, April 14, 2021. Watch for them in backpacks!
