Our Principal, Mrs. Young wants to motive all students to show what they know on classwork and assessments. Last winter Mrs. Young kissed a pig when our students met their goal showing growth on our i-Ready assessment. Then in the spring, Mrs. Young was sprayed with silly string by a student from each class when every grade level showed reading and math growth. Students were inspired to preserve and show their teachers what they know.
This spring Mrs. Young is looking for more ideas to reward students for working hard to show how smart they are. She is asking students to submit ideas to the office in the form of a letter to her. Later she will announce what the incentive will be.
Mrs. Young looks forward to doing some silly, funny, crazy thing in June when students show what they know on our end of year assessments.
