PEORIA, Ill. -- The ELITE team welcomed students to a new year at Harrison Primary School on Monday.
The program is in its first year at Harrison.
During an assembly Monday afternoon, Organizer Carl Cannon 'laid down the rules', explaining to students that this year's goals are to promote self discipline, positive attitudes and respect for authority and each other.
ELITE Team members are confident in the response they have seen thus far.
"I don't think that people give the kids enough credit," said team member Heather Terry. "They're very smart and they pick up on things very quickly. It's going to be great. Harrison, the administration here, is wonderful. We are all really excited for where this school is going."
The ELITE program began its 3rd year at Trewyn School on Monday as well.
