Students recognized for outstanding behavior

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Students from the Jonesboro Health, Wellness, and Environmental Studies Magnet School, 1001 Rosemond Dr., were treated Friday to a tailgate party.

The school participated in a positive behavior program called Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports that allowed students to earn money, or "Pride Bucks," for displaying good behavior in the classroom.

The tailgate party cost the students 25 bucks to attend.

Robin Thomas, a teacher, says this is a great learning lesson for the students.

"If you stay positive and did all the things expected of you in school, you have the possibility of going to college," said Thomas. "We have Howl here today. We have a cheerleading team here, therefore, you can see the possibilities."

The tailgate party pumped up the students for the A-State game Saturday night.

"I think they're learning a quality of team spirit," said Thomas.
