MCES Students SOAR Through The First Semester
Several Montgomery County Elementary School (MCES) Students traveled to Dublin on December 8 and 9 to bowl, have lunch, and play at the park as celebration of their hard work throughout the first semester of the school year.
Each month, students have an opportunity to earn rewards at MCES as part of the SOAR initiative. SOAR, which stands for Strives to do their best, Owns their actions, Acts safely and Respects themselves and others, is a creative way to encourage and reward good behavior. Every month, homeroom teachers nominate a student that demonstrates these attributes. Those nominated are celebrated by having their names announced during morning announcements, receiving a certificate, receiving a coupon for free ice cream, receiving a personalized bag filled with candy and a field trip at the end of the semester with other SOAR students.
This semester’s reward was a field trip to the Shamrock Bowling Center, followed by a picnic lunch and time to play at a local park in Dublin. Pre-kindergarten through Second Grade SOAR Students, along with one Fourth Grade SOAR Student, attended the field trip on Thursday, December 8, while Third Grade through Fifth Grade SOAR students enjoyed the trip on Friday, December 9.
