Students and teachers from the Grand Rapids Public School's Kent Vocational Options and Community Based Occupational Training program (KVO & CBOT), First Place 1 Classroom found a representation of their S.O.A.R. theme at ArtPrize 2011. S.O.A.R. stands for Safe, On-task, Aware of self and Responsible and is part of the Positive Behavior Intervention and Support program newly implemented this year. The image associated with this program and pictured on all school materials is the eagle and students were quick to point out the piece of chalk artwork by Edgar Mueller of Germany. The students had a chance to meet and speak with the artist and found out that he has done work for Disney and has displayed pieces in London, Canada an Moscow. The students felt like the image really brought them in and described it as "3-D." This was a good opportunity for the classroom instructional staff to incoorporate the PBIS program with their tour of ArtPrize.
