Top 20

Top 20 is an incentive competition for all 6th and 7th graders.  Students can earn points through participation in class discussions, winning in-class games, excellent behavior, just to name a few. Additional points can be earned by doing the on-line quizzes I post on my page a few times during the quarter. At the end of the quarter, the top 20% of the students in each grade who have earned the most points receive a reward of some kind.

The Second Trimester prize is lunch from Avanti's.
