As part of the school’s positive behavior plan, students earn SCORE tickets for positive behavior choices and have the opportunity to save them and turn them in for admission to one of the parties. The parties have different themes and snacks and door prizes are given away.

These parties would not be possible without support from area businesses. Businesses that have donated money or prizes this year include: Endeavor Communications, First National Bank, Cloverdale Drugs, Putnam Plastics, Ottawa Instant Homes and Headley Hardware.

The first party held this year was a SCORE smore party. Students attending this party had the opportunity to make smores at a campfire in the school’s nature park. October hosted a frightfully fun dance party with popcorn and pop. The final party of the semester was a December holiday party that included sugar cookie decorating and cotton candy.

Roughly 100 students have participated in each party to date. Prizes given away have included gift cards, beenie babies, backpacks, school supply kits, stuffed animals, gold dollar coins and ‘Wii time.’

The school would like to thank each of the businesses that have donated to the cause. Any individual or business interested in donating money or door prizes may do so by contacting Brad Sandy at Cloverdale Elementary School, 765-795-4339.
