Magnolia Trace Elementary
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports Program (PBIS)
What is PBIS?
The St. Tammany Parish Positive Behavior program addresses the behavior of all students by adapting the environment to support positive behavior and teaching/reinforcing appropriate behavior and skills.
Maggie Colored Bone Chart
Students start at "Maggie is Ready to Learn" everyday!
As part of our efforts to promote positive behavior at Magnolia Trace Elementary, our PBIS program was designed to acknowledge and reward students for meeting specific school-wide expectations through the use of a daily colored bone chart and periodic incentives. Students who have followed the Maggie 4:
Follow the Rules
Make Good Choices
have enjoyed special rewards that have included an extra recess with popsicles, a holiday movie and silly band, a no shoes day, and a no homework pass to name a few. Students can look forward to many more wonderful rewards throughout the year by continuing to make good choices.

MTE PBIS Committee Reaches Out to the Community
All of our Magnolia Trace families know about the school-wide expectations: The Maggie4. We give Maggie slips, broadcast examples, sing the “Maggie4”, and children go home with blue measles on their cheeks (Maggie paw print tattoo rewards). Our school-wide expectations are also advertised in our building through fabulous murals, posters, interactive bulletin boards, and our website. However, the rest of St. Tammany has been missing out on MTE’s shared beliefs and values, until one Wed. night. MTE faculty members, Mrs. Hellmers, Mrs. Watters, and Mrs. McCormick, chalked the front of Texas Roadhouse to share the Maggie4 with all of St. Tammany’s parishioners (well at least the ones that like to eat steak and/or peanuts). We are proud of our school and hope this sheds a positive light to all tax payers as to how tax dollars are effectively used in St. Tammany Parish’s public school system.
