Good behavior goes a long way

By Adam Hooper - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Who ever said good behavior doesn't pay off? Because, the students at R.W. Vincent Elementary are having a 'buccaneering' good time, and all because of good behavior.

"This is our positive behavior support system. It is parish wide in Calcasieu Parish. Every six weeks we have a new themed party, and it is for those children who have done the right thing and followed the rules," said Anne Bailey, teaher at R.W Vincent.

So, because of good behavior students got to board Jean Laffitte's pirate ship, play some games, and even walk the plank. But, one of the favorites was the dunking booth.

"I did a favor for one of the teachers by doing the dunking booth. She owes me big time," said Heather Watson, teacher at R.W. Vincent.

Buccaneer Bob said, he enjoyed seeing the students so happy.

"We enjoy this. This is the fun part of being a buccaneer. It is what it is all about," said Bob Peloquin.

And, at the end of the day, the little pirates owe it all to good behavior.
