WEST WARWICK â€“ Yesterday morning, students at Greenbush Elementary School were getting amped up about positive behavior during a school-wide assembly.
The Ned Show, an international program designed to enhance the school atmosphere, visits with over 2.2 million students annually, according to a news release. They came to West Warwick since Greenbush Elementary began an initiative to reward good behavior two years ago with the Rhode Island Department of Education.
â€śIt illustrates our pledge and our commitment to kids being respectful, responsible and safe. Itâ€™s all about making sure kids have the positive interactions around the school environment,â€ť said Susan Buonanno, the principal.
The Ned Show was hosted at Greenbush by Leah, a performer who wishes to be known only by her first name. Ned, Leah explained, is an acronym: Never give up, Encourage others and Do your best.
â€śWhether youâ€™re a student, a teacher, or a Ned Show performer, everything we do, we have to have a positive attitude and keep trying, even when things get in our way and we want to quit,â€ť she told the students.
