Fifth-grade students at a New Jersey elementary school are participating in the CARES program. The program -- which stands for Connecting, Achieving, Rewarding, Encouraging and Serving -- was established two years ago to help students develop responsibility, respect, good manners and honesty. Through the program, fifth-graders are told they are role models and are taught to take on more responsibility, in part, by completing jobs at school and being "paid."
