          "RESPECT" Tickets:  Every Friday, we celebrate those who are caught exhibiting good behavior and excellent choices by drawing names from each classroom for either a prize, an elevator ride or lunch with the Principal!
           
          Popcorn Fridays!  After lunch, the office begins selling a hot yummy bag of popcorn for .50 cents.  It's a great treat and a wonderful way to support our school!
           
          Box Tops - We collect General Mills Box Tops all year round.  We have two collection bins in the foyer and Box Top Bucks collection sheets on the wall outside the office door.  Every time a student brings a completed "buck" they will receive a prize from the office!
