NPMS teachers developed a GET GRIT Program. GET GRIT is an acronym for Goal Setting,Evaluate Your Challenge, Try A Strategy, Give Yourself A Chance, Reach For Resources, Initiate Communication and Track Your Success. GET GRIT is considered a key contributor to success. The teachers devise the goal in order to enhance student's independence with respect to responsibility, perseverance and problem solving. Through challenges taught in the classroom, students learn to overcome obstacles and have an opportunity to achieve success. Teachers also hung posters in classrooms and handed out bookmarks to every student, emphasizing the initials and words GET GRIT represents.
