Students in Mr.Nebbia classroom have been working with Officer Holifield in the GREAT program recently. Officer Holifield comes once week for a minute lesson about how to deal with conflicts that arise and peer pressure. Students are acquiring skills for cooperative learning, facilitated group discussions with their peers.
The Gang Resistance Education And Training (G.R.E.A.T.) is a violence prevention program that has been building trust between law enforcement and communities for almost 30 years! Respecting and having empathy for others, making good choices, and setting positive goals are just some of the skills and attitudes that students are taught in the G.R.E.A.T.
