• We are a PBIS & Bucket Filling school. PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. Our school operates on the following five key “WHITTIER WAYS”:

    1.       Respect

    2.      Responsibility

    3.      Safety

    4.      Preparedness

    5.      Cooperation

    All students are to be respectful of themselves and others. Students are expected to practice responsibility in being safe, cooperative, and good choice-making behaviors. Students earn “Dream Dollars” to use throughout the year at our PBIS store as well as various events that will occur to celebrate their positive behaviors at Whittier. 

    Students are given opportunities to fill one another’s buckets with kind words and compliments. Students at Whittier are proud to be held to high standards of civility and anti-bullying behavior. We work to instill civic responsibility and caring for others as a part of our mission. At Whittier, it’s cool to be nice!

    Students will also be held accountable anytime they choose not to comply with being respectful, responsible, safe, prepared, or cooperative.
