Scenes from SCES "It Pays to be Good"

Students at Social Circle Elementary who had no discipline referrals in the second semester were treated to a water slide, obstacle course and a refreshing shower from the fire truck at the end of the year "It Pays to Be Good" celebration sponsored by Communities In Schools.  

"This is a great way to help teachers limit the disruptions that take away from instructional time," said SCES Principal Jodi Weber.  "The students know this reward is on the horizon and they really want to participate, so we get great behavior all year."

"I'm proud of all our students who made it," said CIS Site Coordinator.  "They worked hard and deserve a treat."  

In addition to the water festivities, the CIS Site Team at SCES also planned a fund raiser where students could "vote" by placing spare change in a jar to select Mr. and Mrs. SCES from among the faculty and staff.  The event raised $385 for the CIS Community Care Fund at SCES, an account that provides emergency financial assistance for students and their families.
