Dear Paper Mill Families,

This year, your child will be introduced to Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) at Paper Mill. PBIS is a district-wide initiative and this approach is being used in every elementary school across Westfield. The positive approach of PBIS ensures that our students will be taught expected behaviors. They will be acknowledged when they succeed and will be re-taught the expectations when they make mistakes.

At Paper Mill, we have four school wide expectations, which we refer to as the Panther Promise.  

As Paper Mill Panthers, we promise to 
Be Kind
Be Respectful
Be Safe
Be Responsible

Please talk to your student about the Panther Promise and see if they can tell you how they can show being kind, respectful, safe and responsible. 

Thank you for your time and collaboration. We appreciate your support and the positive effect it will have on your children in this learning environment.
