We filled our bucket!!
Congratulations to Rooms K1 who filled their classroom buckets this week!
Keep up the great work! We have many classrooms who are close to filling their buckets and know that all of our HMS students will keep working hard showing our PAWS expectations every day! When classrooms fill their buckets, they earn a class reward. Some examples of rewards we have seen so far this year: PJ day, Stuffed Animal Day, Fort Day, and extra recess.
