Bands, cheerleaders, steppers, singers, and other student groups performed to pump up excitement about doing welSONY DSCl in school.  The older kids were telling younger kids it’s cool to make good grades.  It’s really exciting to see students cheering together about good grades and academic excellence.

It was ecstatic! 

We gave away prizes.  Students who made “A’s” in core subjects: Math, Science, English/Language Arts and History/Social Studies were eligible to win prizes like gift cards valued from $25 to $100.

It was exciting!
