Olympic day held at Wausau school to reward good behavior

WAUSAU (WAOW) - Some Wausau students were rewarded for good behavior Monday, and celebrated with an Olympics theme.

More than 300 Stettin Elementary students did a fun version of the Olympics. School leaders say each classroom picked a country and made that country's flag. They showed the flags off in the closing ceremony at the end of the day.

School leaders say this is all an effort to celebrate the students' good behavior.

"Our focus is work hard do your best and with Olympians working hard consistently and doing the best and we thought that would be a great thing to have in the school," said 3rd Grade teacher Beth Gruber.

"It was a very great experience and I hope next time it's just as fun," said 4th grader, Grace Albee. 

The students participated in 12 activities, one of them was Kleenex-box speed skating.

School leaders say this is the first time the school held an Olympic day.
