Help make our school equitable and safe

New members are needed for the STEM Community Team (formerly PBIS Team). Parents, students and community are vitally important voices on this team! Below is a description; if you are interested in joining, email Danielle, STEM school counselor, at dnblechert@seattleschools.org or call/text at 425-243-7836.

The Community Team works to make STEM a more welcoming, equitable and safe school using Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), RULER, community engagement, assemblies, and centering student/family voice.

PBIS (https://www.pbis.org/) is a tiered system of support that aims to create common behavioral expectations within our communities and positively reinforces when they are met. It also provides specific social-emotional support to students who have additional needs.

RULER (https://www.ycei.org/ruler-research-projects) is a curriculum using tools like the Mood Meter, Blueprint, and Classroom Charter to teach kids emotional identification and regulation, problem-solving skills and community agreements.

Join us! We’ll meet after school 1-2 times per month to strengthen the STEM community and educational support for all students. Email Danielle, STEM school counselor, at dnblechert@seattleschools.org or call/text at 425-243-7836.
