St. Monica Catholic School continues with their efforts to enhance learning at SMCS through a research-based prevention program to reduce mean and aggressive behavior and bullying.  

This program includes:

  • use of common language with specific consequences for aggressive behavior
  • rubrics (rules) based on objective behavior standards
  • focus on how to model, teach and reinforce pro-social behaviors such as respect for others, caring and empathetic behaviors and building positive relationships 
The student component of the program teaches:
  • how to identify  and effectively respond to hurtful behavior
  • How to get help if their responses haven't stopped hurtful behavior
  • how to be a "good bystander" when they are watching someone get picked on or socially isolated
