Celebrating Our Habits of Success!

Help me give my students rewards for positive behavior. The bikes will be given to students whose names are entered in a drawing for consistently demonstrating excellent behavior. The rest of the items will be prizes for students.

My Students

Our school is a first year charter school that serves many low income families. The focus for our students is academic growth. Many of them are behind academically, and we work hard to help bring them up to grade level.

These students are up to the challenge, and they work hard daily to improve themselves and inspire others (especially their teachers) along the way.

Many of our students have already shown a year's worth of a growth in half a school year, so we're excited to see what the semester brings.

My Project

As a way to reward good behavior, students receive Habits of Success tickets for things like perseverance and showing respect. They get to cash these tickets in at our school store every other week. As a way to continue to encourage our students, we are looking for donations to help stock this store, such as snacks/drinks or little toys (Think: birthday party gift bag) that students enjoy. Some of our students actually chose to use their tickets before Christmas to get things for siblings as gifts rather than for themselves which was fun to see! For continued good behavior, students also have their names entered in a raffle where we’d love to have some larger prizes they could win, such as bikes.

Students get so excited on Thursdays when they get a chance to spend the tickets they've earned on these fun prizes!

They've been saving up their special tickets to put in the raffle drawing, as well. Since implementing this Habits of Success Store on a consistent basis in November, we've seen a drastic decrease in the number of discipline referrals at our school. It's so fun to reward students for positive behavior and encouraging to see how much they have bought into the process.
