G.R.E.A.T.

G.R.E.A.T. Presentation
On October 18, 2018, Molly Conrado, Jody Ehrke, Kelli Garcia, Martha Martinez (4th grade teachers at Arbuckle Elementary School) along with Deputy Leanne Knutson, presented the G.R.E.A.T program to the school board.





The program is in its second year of implementation at both Arbuckle Elementary School and Grand Island Elementary. The G.R.E.A.T program is a school-based, law-enforcement officer- instructed classroom curriculum. Prevention is its primary objective and the program is intended as an immunization against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership. G.R.E.A.T lessons focus on providing life skills to students to help them avoid using delinquent behavior and violence to solve problems. The program consist of six lessons that are presented to individual classrooms one time a week. At the end of the six weeks the students are provided a certificate and a reward to celebrate the completion of the course. We feel lucky to have the support of the Colusa County Sherriff’s Department as we continue to prepare our students to be successful citizens.
