Yellowstone Academy is a private PK3-8th grade school for children living in extreme poverty.
We would like to use $1000.00 to purchase trophies for academic achievement to be given at a school wide end-of-the-year awards ceremony. We want academic achievement to receive the same (or better!) recognition than sports and fine arts.
The money will be used to purchase trophies and medallions of all sizes and shapes to reward academic achievement in different subject areas, in honor and achievement rolls, and in accelerated reading, It will also be used to reward "most improved" in each class and to award those who show the discipline of hard work and perseverance. Most of our students will be the first high school graduates in their families, let alone college. We want academics to be praised and celebrated.
