October 30, 2013

SILOAM — Tracie Whitaker of Copeland Elementary School is the recipient of a Bright Ideas Grant.


The grant was awarded to Whitaker and is written to provide daily incentives to students. The incentives are rewards for appropriate behavior from students that support the school-wide positive behavior plan.


Students are encouraged to follow all expectations of the plan and are rewarded with positive incentives. The money will be used to purchase daily rewards and for quarter expenses to promote the concept in order to build confidence and character for students.
