Please help us in enhancing the PBIS Reward program by supplying incentives for students and teachers who are rewarded points for their good deeds! Students will have an opportunity to purchase supplies by using points they have earned for example, focusing on work, showing super school spirit, helping another student, teacher, or staff member, keeping our campus clean, etc. Teachers will also have an opportunity as well to earn points for being caught doing something amazing or wearing super school spirit on Fridays! All Staff members have been tracking student’s and teacher’s points so that they are rewarded with supplies/prizes that they can use at home or at school. Take a look at the many items available and help support our store!
Note: The store will be open the last Friday of every month beginning Oct. 25th. Kids can visit the store during their lunch recess.
