What are your thoughts on the PRIDE program? Its OK, I like the idea of being able to save currency to buy stuff. -Jeremy (HS) I think its a wonderful way to show students how to deal with money and show rewards for good behavior. -Esara (HS) I think that the teachers go over EAA PRIDE Program a little too much, but sometimes it works. -Tyler (HS) I think its cool and fair because the ones that are doing right deserve things like rewards. -Ciara (HS) I think its good. You get currency for showing PRIDE at EAA. -Breanna (HS)
