Positive School Environment
To foster a positive school environment where all students are educated in a safe and caring atmosphere, all Archdiocesan schools follow established procedures for prevention and intervention for bullying, harassment or intimidation.
St. Joseph School - Fullerton follows the positive reinforcement plan set by the Maryland PBIS Team. PBIS is the Positive Behavior Intervention System. The program places the focus on acknowledging the positive behavior that students are exhibiting in the classroom and throughout the school. We encourage this each day on the morning announcements, and frequently throughout the year as recognition is given.
Our motto, directly connects to our Mascot, states that we are “All Part of the
P.A.C.K.” in that each day we:
- Accept Responsibility
- Keep Trying
