KUDOS TO LAKE WALES CHARTER SCHOOLS!
Over the past five years, InnerAct Alliance has taught The PAX Good Behavior Game to teachers and students in the Lake Wales Charter Schools. PAX means peace, productivity, and health in Latin. The program teaches peaceful life skills, encourages anti-bullying strategies, and promotes kindness and team work. PAX has been embraced by Lake Wales teachers, administrators, and School Superintendent, Dr. Jesse L. Jackson. Many of the Lake Wales Charter Schools personnel have attended the nationwide PAX-Good Behavior Game training.
PAX has been approved and funded by the Federal Government through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Research and findings for the program show decreases in suicidal tendencies, drug abuse, and violent behaviors in adolescents and adults who were exposed to PAX in elementary school.
We are proud of the Lake Wales School System for embracing The PAX Program and bringing it to their teachers and students. InnerAct Alliance looks forward to partnering with more schools in the future!
