Independence Elementary announced the first “Swamp Stomp Class.”

Independence Elementary is using a swamp theme this year, which stands for School-Wide Achievement of Mastery and Perseverance, a news release from the school said.

Catherine Campbell’s first-grade class was nominated as the Swamp Stomp Class for following the school’s Positive Behavior Incentive Support expectations. The expectations are: to be there, participate, choose that positive attitude and make someone’s day. All of the students are working towards mastery on the next iLEAP and LEAP tests and perseverance through problem solving, the release said.

Each class nominated is presented with a Swamp Stomp trophy to display in the classroom for one week.
