Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports is a systematic approach in teaching behavioral expectations throughout the school. It is based on a proactive model to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students to achieve social, emotional, and academic success.

At Lincoln we focus on three essential principles to ensure that all students are doing their best in and outside the classroom. The “Lincoln Lions’ Pride” principles are:

 Be Respectful                              Be Responsible                             Be Helpful

 

Second Step

Second Step is a universal, classroom-based social-emotional curriculum that is based on research.  Each lesson is developmentally appropriate and sequential.  Lessons are designed to teach children how to understand and manage their emotions, control their reactions, be aware of others’ feelings and have the skill to problem solve and make responsible decisions.

Lincoln School, in conjunction with District 97, is using this program to create and sustain a positive school climate that will increase the social, emotional and academic success of all students.

You can access all the concepts to be covered, and the objectives for each lesson, by clicking on the following grade level Scope and Sequence links.

Each week on a Tuesday afternoon, the entire school will be taught the Second Step curriculum at a classroom level.  Please use the following table to access take-home materials (when available) which can be used to reinforce the lesson taught that day.
