Students have been earning "RESPECT" tickets since the beginning of the year. They write their names on the back of the ticket and the teachers collect them. Every Friday we draw a respect ticket from each grade level and that student receives a prize. At the end of the month, we take all the respect tickets for that month and we draw 10 names for pizza with the principal. These lucky students were the winners for the month of September. I'm so proud of these students and after eating lunch with them, it made sense why they were chosen. Such a great group of kiddos!
