Students at Geneva Heights Elementary School are shopping ’til they drop as part of an incentive program to reward good behavior and attendance during the third six weeks.
Students were awarded “Cougar Cash” in order to buy presents for themselves, a friend or family member. Each student started with $10 and then could earn more during the six weeks. The “Heights Holiday Store” features donated jewelry, candles, toys and trinkets, mugs, frames, gift wrap, ribbons, tape, tags and money donated by Geneva Heights parents and community members. Parents Sarah Shopay and Julie Kim organized the holiday store.
The store was open on Tuesday, Dec. 18, for the shopping experience. Students presented their Cougar Cash to determine how much they had to spend, and then went through the store looking for items.
