SE Students Reap Rewards

Students at Southeast Lauderdale Elementary School were rewarded Friday for a year's worth of good behavior.

A kickball game between teachers and students was just one of the rewards that students were given for taking part in the positive behavior intervention and support program.

Each nine weeks, students are rewarded for their good behavior with paw punches, which they can redeem for rewards, like the kickball game.

School officials say the program is working.

"We're now seeing students recognizing other students for positive behavior," said assistant principal Steven Holifield. "They're able to write the principal to have Tiger of the Day, so we're seeing that it's going from teachers recognizing students to students recognizing students and even other teachers, for positive behavior."

Some other students were rewarded by getting to have lunch at the VIP tables at the school.
