April’s Gold Star is Mystery! She is a 9th grader and has been in the program all year. She has had a lot of absences and this was really affecting her grades. Her mentor made a deal with her that if she could make every class period every day for a week, she would bring her one of her favorite things.
Mystery said that she loved coffee and so they agreed that if she had no absences or tardies for a week, she would bring her Starbucks. That idea led us to try to encourage her and the other students to make attendance a priority and through donations from our community, we implemented a “Every Class, Every Day” program for all the students in our program. Before we started this program, Mystery had 178 class absences and 22 tardies.
We started the coffee incentive program at the beginning of February and since then she’s only had 16 class absences and 1 tardy! We have seen what such a difference this has made in her attitude and classwork & grades.” – by Sean Byars, Mentor Coordinator
