Bonus Opportunities

Parents and Students,

Here is an opportunity for students to earn bonus points for bringing in consumable items that we will use throughout the school year. What are consumable items? Consumables are products that consumers buy recurrently, i.e., items which "get used up" or discarded. For example consumable science supplies include...popsicle sticks, styrofoam cups, vinegar, masking tape, etc. All students need to do is print off the consumable items form below and pick up 8 items from the given list and turn them in to Mr. Curren to collect their bonus points. I award the bonus points (maximum of 20 per quarter) at the end of each grading period. Each item earns them 5 bonus points. This program is entirely optional and NOT a requirement. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at school. Our phone number is 323-4650 and my extension is 5631.

Here is an opportunity for students to earn bonus points (5 points per item with a maximum of 20 points/quarter) for bringing in any of the following items. These additional supplies will assist us in being able to conduct more experiments with our students! Bring in two of any of the following items per quarter. If students chose, they can bring 8 total items at the start of the year and I will give them 10 bonus points at the end of each quarter (40 bonus points for the year)

EXAMPLE…Jeff brings in 8 items on the list at the start of the year. I give him 5 points per item. He earns the maximum 40 bonus points. At the end of the quarter I will give Jeff 5, 10, 15, up to 20 bonus points from the 40 points he earned for that quarter. He can then use the remaining bonus points for another quarter until he has exhausted all of his bonus points.

If you are interested in doing this, please print off the consumables item list below, fill out the form, pick-up your item(s), complete the form, and turn it into Mr. Curren.
