Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence based framework for improving and integrating all of the data, systems, and practices affecting student outcomes every day. It is a way to support everyone and to create the kinds of schools where all students are successful.

Our school wide expectations are called our Guidelines for Success.  We teach lessons on these skills, and these are reinforced through our Soar to Success positive behavior program.  We encourage you to talk to your Audubon student(s) about showing these skills at home, school, and in the community.

Guidelines for Success - Embracing Diversity, Empathy, Grit, Integrity, and Self-Control

At Audubon we recognize positive behavior through our Soaring to Success program.  

Soaring to Success

  • All AES students will have the opportunity to receive an Eagle Up! card below from Audubon Staff when a student goes above and beyond the Guidelines for Success.

  • The student will immediately take their Eagle Up! card to the front office, sign their name in the Audubon Celebrity book, make a phone call home to share the news, and receive a scented pencil! The student will also sign one of the 100 squares on the Soar to Success Scoreboard, located in the cafeteria.

  • When all 100 squares fill up with student signatures, the whole school celebrates with a special celebration!

K-5 Classrooms teach Social and Emotional Learning using the Caring Schools Community Curriculum.  This CASEL approved, evidence based curriculum promotes positive behavior through direct teaching of responsibility, empathy, and cooperation, creating settings where students feel heard, known, and cared for. Students become intrinsically motivated to contribute productively to a community they feel invested in, and where they know they matter.  Great news, families.  Your child’s teacher will send home a weekly letter from Caring School Community allowing you to carry over skills learned in the classroom to home.


Our preschool classrooms this year intend to dive into Emotional ABC’s.  This evidence-based curriculum, developed with psychologists and educators,

teaches your child how to think through and evaluate their choices in emotionally charged situations.

The Zones of Regulation curriculum (or “The Zones” for short), are lessons and activities to help students gain  skills  in  the  area  of naming their emotions and using tools to manage them.  The  lessons  and  learning  activities  are designed to help the students recognize when they are in the different zones as well as learn how to  use  strategies  to  change  or  stay  in  the  zone  they  are  in.  All zones are okay, but learning to manage our actions is very important.  Students learn these lessons when they attend their social and emotional learning related arts with Mrs. Day.

Mrs. Duke, school counselor, teaches our students 9 common self-regulation coping tools they may use to help them self-regulate when needed. More information about these tools can be found here.
