LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Lehigh Elementary School will be receiving the “Good Neighbor Grant” for the second year for its students. Named in honor of both the State Farm slogan and Lehigh Elementary School’s Original name – Lehigh Neighborhood School – this grant recognizes students who exemplify the qualities of being a “good neighbor.”
Students who are role models to their classmates will be recognized with T-shirts and
other rewards that serve as a visible reminder of their character and positive choices. Students will also be working together to build a better “school community” through service learning projects.
In its second year, the success of this program can be measured on many levels. The tangible results include a significant drop in discipline referrals, a noticeably cleaner campus as students respect the efforts of campus clean ups and recycling efforts, and Good Neighbor students are working harder to achieve academic goals and motivating others.
