PBIS Parent Resources (Supporting Positive Behavior)

Some children seem to be socially adept from birth, while others
struggle with various challenges of social acceptance. Some
children make friends easily; others are loners. Some children have
self-control, and others have quick tempers. Some are natural
leaders, while others are withdrawn.

Many aspects of social development seem to be an innate part of
a child’s temperament, but we also know that the environment can
play an important part in shaping a child’s social development.

In the last ten years, psychologists have become increasingly aware
that social skills can, and should, be taught. Many studies have
shown that shy children can become more outgoing, aggressive
children can learn self-control, and children who tend to be social
isolates can be taught how to make friends.

There is no question that children with better social skills have a
significant advantage in life. They not only experience the rewards
of positive relationships, but they do better in school, have a better
self-image, and in general, are much more resilient as they face
life’s inevitable challenges. (from the work of Lawrence E. Shapiro, Ph.D.)

Grapeland has implemented the PBIS system as a proactive approach to 
behavior management. The document below will help to provide a frame-
work for families to support their children at home and help reinforce our 
school-wide expectations here at school. Thank you for partnering with 
us to ensure all students are both academically and behaviorally
