Students didn't let a few little obstacles get in the way of a great Friday afternoon at Sauk Trail.
For the second straight year, the school held a Friendly Fun obstacle course competition. The event was held as a reward to students to culminute four weeks of implementing a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS) booster activity called "We Play Fairly,'' school pshychologist Sharese Maly said.
Students from grades 2-3 competed from 12:55 to 1:25 p.m., with kindergarten and first grade next and followed by grades 4-5. Teachers would randomly pick a name from their class. In all, four students from each classroom participated.
Students have received Sauk Trail Bucks for engaging in responsible, respectful and safe behavior on the playround, Principal Chris Dahlk said. Students who receive the fake money then have their name entered into the drawing.
"It's a great way to involve all of our students,'' she said.
The winning classroom was crowned champions at the end of the program. Of course, everyone went home a winner because all students received a healthy snack for following recess rules, "The Sauk Trail Way."
