Positive behavior is the key to success at Forest Park Elementary.
Students had a break from their regular classroom activities Thursday to take in a few lessons in appropriate behavior.
At Forest Park, students participate in a Positive Behavior Support program. Though all the elementary schools have a program in place, students at Forest Park partake in G.R.O.W. (Good role model, Respectful, Organized and Willing to learn).
Students were reminded Thursday about the G.R.O.W. program and the Trouble Free Playground.
"Students moved from station to station inside and out to learn about the proper G.R.O.W. procedures," Zimmerman said.
Students learned about appropriate behavior in the classroom, lunchroom and in the hallways. On the playground, teachers and instructional assistants went over the rules of the playground and games.
"Students earn G.R.O.W. tickets when they are noticed observing Level three appropriate behavior," she said. "Each week, one student is recognized in each grade level through a ticket drawing. Then at the end of each grading period, one name will be drawn for a prize."
Students and teachers also took part in a hat day Thursday to raise money for "Beat it for Benny" Mucopolysaccharide (MPS) Walk/Run, which is scheduled for Sept. 25, at Deming Park, Terre Haute.
