Rewarding students for positive behavior is the basis for the C.H.I.P.S. – Children Honored In Positive Situations – program at Spring Grove Elementary. The goal is to “catch” students doing good things. “It’s not just the teachers catching the students doing acts of kindness, but the students are catching each other doing acts of kindness,” explained second-grade teacher, Jill Bjerke. “It is really neat to see.” This week’s C.H.I.P.S. recipients pictured with principal Nancy Gulbranson are: Katelyn Kraus, Emerson Ingvalson, Gabe Lancaster, Maia Elton and Tiffany Michels.
