Our school is located in a small rural community with limited resources and entertainment opportunities. Our students come from various backgrounds. They are hard workers who show their PRIDE each day. Some have more challenging home lives than others. Being able to work for positive behavior incentives is important to them. It motivates our students and makes them want to attend school. It teaches them that although learning and school are hard work, the effort pays off and can also be fun. It gives them something to make them feel good about themselves each day throughout the school year.
