    PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Support):

    Lincoln Lions will now follow the new expectations to reduce behavior and safety incidents. I encourage parents to use the same expectations that we teach at school. This common language creates consistency and a unified support for expected students' behavior. Children thrive when they have consistent and predictable expectations and consequences.
