Student Incentives and Focus
Liberty Junior sponsors several incentive programs that are designed to motivate student achievement, encourage positive behavior, and reward consistency.
Here is a description of those programs:
- A's to Win (one $50 Gift Certificate at Wal-Mart will be awarded at each drawing)
Thanks to the generosity of our Parent-Teacher Organization and numerous local businesses, LJS was able to distribute over 1,000 prizes to deserving students last school year through this A's to Win program. Teachers award students exhibiting positive behavior with an A's to Win card. They then place their cards in an entry box to await the next drawing. Every two weeks a random drawing is held to award prizes. Among other items, sixteen Wal-Mart $50 gift certificates are given away each year. Other students receive coupons or gifts donated by local businesses.
- Student of the Month/Most Improved Students
Each month teachers may nominate one of their students for each category. These students are given a certificate and a coupon from a local business or lunch with our principals.
- 100% Homework Pizza Lunch
We recognize students who complete and turn in all their homework with a pizza lunch for the first three quarters of the year.
Students receiving a 3.0 GPA on their report card are treated to a special ice cream during their lunch time on the day the report cards are distributed.
Excellent behavior gets rewarded here at LJS. All students who have gone all year without any type of detention or office referral are able to participate in the ice cream social.
- Straight A Cincinnati Reds Ticket Incentive Offer
For years the Cincinnati Reds (George Clooney even spoke about how excited he was when in school and would receive this application form) honored students who received a 3.3 or better on their 1st Semester GPA with ticket applications. Game dates and prices are listed (students enter free). These applications are distributed to students who had a 3.3 or higher first quarter during advisory in late January. We thank the Cincinnati Reds for their support of education and for this incentive.
