Discovery students can earn Eagle Tokens for displaying expected behaviors. Each class is collecting tokens and working to meet an established goal. Once an established goal is reached, each class celebrates with a classroom-chosen reward.
As classrooms earn more and more tokens for displaying expected behaviors, the puzzle pieces to our Bronze, Silver, and Gold medals will be earned. A SCHOOL-WIDE reward occurs for each medal that is completed. Students voted for a picnic lunch & movie once the BRONZE medal pieces have been earned.
I am here to support you during these unprecedented times. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will respond as soon as possible. Together we will surmount this challenge!
