Students will be monitored for their SMART Behavior: Safe, Motivated, Academic, Respectful, Team players. Students who receive SMART cards will put their names in for a weekly drawing of various school supplies and rewards. They can also save them for trimester award parties. We hope you will support our school’s positive environment and encourage your student to earn these rewards.
