Brownie Points!!!

Our class loves to earn Brownie Points! Each week, students visit special classes outside of the classroom. In order to promote great behavior outside of the classroom, students can earn brownie points. When students go to PE, Art, Music, Library and Guidance they can earn paper brownies to put in our classroom pan. When the pan is filled...You guessed it...They get real brownies! Students are doing an excellent job as a whole class. They have received perfect scores from all their special classes since the beginning of the year. They have already enjoyed "Real Brownies" twice this year. Thank you for your continued support in encouraging your child to display great behavior at school!
