Please Help Support our HAWK Store and Cart!
Our second quarter is off to a great start! We are continuing to work on supporting students with positive behavior through our PBIS and All Things EQ. Our “kindness campaign” is very successful and we at Desert Mountain would like to see it continue. Students are able to earn HAWK (Honorable, Accountable, Willing, Kind) bucks for positive behavior. We are asking for donations for our HAWK store. Desert Mountain students love being able to earn HAWK bucks and spend it at the store. Many of our item purchases are from Amazon, Oriental Trading, Dollar store or something similar. If you would like to donate items or money, please contact Patti Atchley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 623-445-3504. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
