Help me give my students an unexpected treat for doing a great job.

I am a school social worker at a high school in an urban school district. My students come from diverse backgrounds. In addition to school, many students have jobs and other responsibilities at home which adds to their stress levels. My students struggle to manage social, academic, and home demands throughout their day. 67% of students receive free or reduced lunch.
My students face many barriers to achieving academic success.
Many have experienced trauma and have difficulty coming to school regularly. When they do come to school, many struggle to achieve academic success in the classroom. They lack the coping skills needed to manage stress and find academic success.
These items will be used to surprise students with an unexpected reward for demonstrating panther pride. Those students who show pride in their school and academics will be given a bowl or mug with goodies and a gift card. I hope to use these items to foster school spirit and engage everyone in having pride in their school.
Our school mascot is a panther and I want to help others take pride in their school and education.
Each surprise gift will contain a panther figurine. Everyone will have fun figuring out where these surprises came from. Each gift will also contain a note stating why they are receiving this gift of Panther Pride.
