 To sign up Kroger Rewards
 
 During 2018-19 school year, Kroger money was used in the following ways:
  • classroom supplies -- purchased classroom support materials for Mrs. Jobst, Mrs. Lindig, Mrs. Sinetos, Mrs. Zoelzer, Mrs. Stevenson, Mrs. Brown, Mr. Gebben, Mr. Gould, Mrs. Lawsha, Mrs. Gaughan, and Mrs. Darby

  • giving back to students -- currently have given back over $2,000 to our students with various gift cards from local establishments for being Students of Character, winning the monthly student congratulations card drawing, and rewarding students for varied accomplishments

  • student incentives -- provided ice cream sundae reward parties

  • Holiday Jingle Contest -- awarded prizes to over fifty students, including twenty-five gift cards at $5 each

  • end-of-the-year student accomplishments -- given over $500 in gift cards.


The gift cards given are purchased from local businesses so that money stays in the community.  The gift certificates we used this year were from Bianchi's, Jimmy Johns, Subway, Roxy Cinema, Tone’s Cones, Tone’s Dog House, Visa, McDonald's, Dairy Queen, Culver's, Jeremiah Joe Coffee, Pizza Hut, Rosati's, KeKe Sweet Shop, Sam’s Pizza, R Grotto, YMCA, and Ottawa Riordan Pool, Tropical Snow.
