Student Government Association rewards 1,868 kids who had no referrals in the third quarter.
Students played giant Jenga, a human version of Hungry Hungry Hippos, and they took aim in front of the dunk tank at a schoolwide party March 12, at Flagler Palm Coast High School, designed to reward the 1,868 students who had received no bad-behavior referrals in the third quarter.
"If you reward them for doing the right things, the good behavior spreads."
CHERYL PERRY, activities director
The event was planned for the final day before spring break, after assignments and tests are over.
"It gives students an opportunity to decompress," said James Russell, principal. "The fourth quarter really rolls, with testing and year-end events. It's a good kickoff to spring break."
Student Government Association Public Relations Director Erik Toland agreed, but he also added: "Most of all, they just like being out of class."
Alyssa Santore, senior class president, sees the value in the event because it brings the campus together on a large scale.
SGA President Isabella Scarcella says it fosters camaraderie. "It amps up the school spirit."
Cheryl Perry, activities director, attended but, for the first time in 25 years, did not have a role in planning the Positive Behavior Intervention Support event. Instead, it was led by FPC's Teacher of the Year, Evana Fretterd, the new adviser for SGA.
"The idea is, if you reward them for doing the right things, the good behavior spreads," Perry said.
