Joseph Elementary School maintains the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (P.B.I.S.) program to help foster a responsible, respectful and safe learning environment for students and staff.  PBIS is a school-wide behavioral approach where students are supported and empowered to equally contribute to our school’s success and safety.  To highlight and celebrate positive behavior, we have implemented Weller Student store as a reward system for all students.
