The All Star Dash is just over two weeks away. In this edition of the Monday Minute, we’re focusing on prizes! Winning is fun and kids love prizes. To motivate our kids and celebrate their efforts, we loaded the All Star Dash award list with prizes for classrooms, individual students and teachers (turns out, teachers love prizes too). Check it out!
