At this point in the school year, you should have seen some “Colts Cash” coming home with your child. EJHS has a school wide Colts Cash Economy again this year. We have decided to use this as a way to motivate students and also to increase real life money situations. Students will earn “Colts Cash” throughout the year for showing excellent behavior, acts of kindness, work ethic, and earning grades. Students can use this money to purchase items throughout the year, such as hall passes, school supplies, iPad charging, etc. and they can save the money for an auction at the end of each nine-week period. Just like the use of normal hall passes, if there is an emergency (restroom issue, counseling need, etc.), the student would not need to have the cash in order to leave the room. The staff at EJHS is very excited about the countless ways we can use this economy. Already, the students have used the economy to show their strength of character. Many students in the past few days have stopped by the office to turn in Colts Cash bills they have found in the hallway. We are so proud of our students for choosing to do the right thing, even when no one is looking!
WE NEED YOUR HELP WITH DONATIONS
We are looking for items to be auctioned off at the end of the nine week period and everyday items that can be used in individual classrooms. The following is a list of example items: cans/bottles of soda, small bags of chips, pencils, small gift cards, sports gear (footballs, basketballs, etc.), games, or anything else that might be of interest to junior high students. There will be a box in the front office, where you can place these items at any point in the year.
Thank you for your continued support! Looking forward to a great year!
The EJHS Staff
