At the beginning of the first trimester, the fifth grade teachers all decided on some reading and math trimester goals for the grade level. Every student who met the reading or math goal, was given a raffle ticket to win a fabulous prize. In addition to the academic goals, each class picked 5 BARK BUCK winners for the trimester and they each also received a raffle ticket. The students had no idea that there would be a raffle for reaching a goal and were all very intrinsically motivated. This raffle has everyone excited about trimester 2 goals!
