LAST WEEK THE PIRATE CODE LEADERSHIP TEAM KICKED OFF THEIR INCENTIVE PROGRAM FOR THE 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR.  Each Friday one staff and one student winner are selected through a drawing of Pirate Code tickets that are submitted for the week.  Winners receive a variety of incentives including $10 gift cards to local stores, restaurants, Rock Star reserved parking and other cool prizes.  Each week one of our students also receives a $5 STUCO gift card through the Pirate Code “Attendance Games” initiative; students that have 90% attendance or higher are automatically entered into this weekly drawing.  Other cool Pirate Code incentives include the “No Tardy Party” at the end of each semester for students that have zero tardies and our catered Staff/Student Luncheon that takes place each spring.  Winners are announced each Friday morning.  Listen up; you could be our next winner!!  Prizes are picked up in Dr. Dobrinic's office.  Staff, please remember to hand out those Pirate Code tickets!!!!
