Edgenuity/Dreambox competition
  • We are starting a competition between all homerooms, to see which classes can have 100% usage weekly.
  • There will be one monthly winner of a classroom pizza party! 
  • Each week in January, starting next week we will check usage at the end of the week for literacy AND math, meaning we are checking to see how many students logged on and did work that week.
  • Every 3-5 homeroom that has 100% usage for the week in literacy AND math, will get an entry into the monthly drawing for the classroom pizza party! This means you will have an opportunity to earn two entries per week.
  • In k-2, we will only be checking Dreambox, so if your class has 100% usage for the week, you will receive two entries into the drawing. This will keep things fair, since 3-5 classrooms have a chance to earn two entries.
  • We will announce the weekly winners on the announcements and the bulletin board in the hallway will display weekly winners.

We can then draw the monthly winners on the morning announcements, at the end of each month. Mr. Campbell has graciously agreed to provide a monthly pizza party
