All of the money raised will be used to provide additional programs & activities for our students: Assemblies, Special events for 6th, 7th and 8th graders, Team/Club celebrations, and much more!
This year staff will hand out Jaybucks digitally through a program called PBIS Rewards. All students with have their own account, similar to a bank account. If you have a moment, ask your student to show you their account. You would be able to see which teacher recognized your student and you may be able to read what your student was doing to earn the Jaybuck. This online program is new for all students and staff this school year.
