When students earn Spirit Points, they are taken to the student’s second period class and added to the class total of points. At the end of each semester, the class with the most Spirit Points wins a “pig-out” pizza party.
Middle School ASB hopes that Spirit Points will promote more student participation in all school activities. James Barton, grade 8, said, “I think more students will participate because then they get a party.” Elaie Mo, grade 7, said, “More people will participate because winning the contest comes with lots of advantages like getting out of class, a pizza party, and getting to have fun with friends.”
It seems that the Spirit Points incentive is already working. Mrs. Krenik’s class, the current leader, already has 195 Spirit Points.
