Donna’s proposal was awarded $500 to purchase incentives for students as part of a campus-wide program that recognizes safe, respectful, or responsible behavior.
Started in the 2010-11 school year, and based on a nationally-known model, any staff member who sees a student demonstrating safe, respectful, or responsible behavior fills out and submits a “PAH! Paper”. Every full week of school, there is a drawing in each area: elementary, middle, and high school. PAH! Papers are randomly drawn, and the students receive small awards, such as gift cards, books, small toys or craft kits. On average; 50 students are recognized weekly through this program. At the end of the school year, one PAH! Paper is drawn from each area for larger awards, such as backpacks, flashing alarm clocks, sports equipment, etc.
At the end of the school year 2013 , staff reported that the program was a huge success and wanted to continue this work.
