Wish list items for the “King Street Store”
From the desk of Education Director, Deena Murphy
King Street “bucks” are incentives for good deeds and hard work. Students are given the “bucks” to reward good work in reading or math, helping a friend, picking up trash without being asked etc. Tutors, teachers and staff can give students the “bucks.”
Every few weeks, students can spend their “bucks” at our store which offers items in various price ranges — from a $1 jar of playdough to a $20 basketball.
Recently I asked a student how she planned to spend her King Street “bucks” and she said she was saving to buy her older brother a drawing set for a present!
It got me thinking about what other things our kids might want to purchase — either for themselves or others. Here is the list they came up with:
Hot wheels (cars and sets)
Football gloves for kids (red and other colors)
Remote control car
Lego sets (dragon or others)
Tech deck (miniature skateboards)
Children’s watches (boys and girls) Walkie Talkie
Lip Balm making kit
Other art or craft kits
