Hodgesville Elementary has started a positive behavior reward system that comes in the form of High 5 tickets. Students that display positive behaviors, like being positive or being engaged have the opportunity to earn tickets. Students can choose to cash their tickets in on little rewards or save their tickets for "big ticket" rewards, like making s'mores. Harley Dean, fifth grade, said she is looking forward to the s'mores cash in the most but has used her tickets on smaller rewards like a hat and a toy animal.
