Reinforcing Positive Behaviors

Presented as a multi-screen, multimedia video to second through fifth-graders at each of the three elementary schools, “Get a Grip” focused on teaching students about self-control. Utilizing age-appropriate content, the video used current cartoons, music and testimonials to foster positive character education in an engaging, fun and relevant way. The video, presented by Isaac and John who were visiting from California, explored thevarious definitions of self-control and all the areas to which it could apply, such as saving money, patience, and goal-setting. It was part of the district's Red Ribbon Week celebration.
