My Students

My students are absolute ALL STARS. They care so much about other people and it would be nice to give them a little award with an incentive game room. Our current game room has one xbox with one game, that is often broken. Students continuously work hard to get tickets in order to attend this incentive room. I would love them to have a game room they are incredibly proud of and will work extremely hard to enjoy. We will also be providing more comfortable seating in the library.

My Project

M. E. S. students work hard every day to follow our motto: Make Good Decisions, Solve Problems, and Show Respect. By following the motto, students are able to focus on their academics. We would like to award are students are consistently abiding by our motto by having an incentive game room. We want students to strive for their best and also be awarded for their hard work.

We would like to provide two play stations with some sports games for our students.

We would also like them to have board games, a fooseball, table, and air hockey table. I cant imagine the smile on my students faces when they see the new and improved game room!
