Sisters Middle School would like to thank the Sisters Schools Foundation. They have been an instrumental part of making one of our largest incentive programs possible. With their contributions, our student-led leadership program is able to facilitate an ever-growing student store.
This store is maintained and stocked by students here at SMS. This also includes SMS students designing and making the merchandise themselves. This process alone has been a great learning experience for these students, but is also helping the overall student culture and spirit here at SMS.
For those wondering how this is helping our school culture, this is what drives one of our largest incentive programs with the use of Outlaw Bucks. The purchasing of items within the store is through these Outlaw Bucks, which students earn through a variety of positive ways within the school.
This program is in about its third year, and has been extremely successful. We continue to make adjustments and innovations to ensure that this program is working to build our school culture and spirit. We would not be able to sustain this program without the help from Sisters Schools Foundation. Their continued support helps us maintain this program, which I believe to be a critical component of the SMS culture.
