As a teacher, I know that I work hard to help my students succeed. In fact, sometimes it feels like I earned their grade just as much as they did! If this kind of devotion describes a teacher’s efforts, just imagine the hard work we put into our own children’s academic pursuits. We check and double check homework, we pop into the online grade books daily (sometimes hourly!), we call teachers and principals, we help with projects and reports, and we push them to do their best.

Student Incentives from Restaurants

Well, I think it’s time that it pays off for us!  After all, we all deserve a reward for our hard work this year!  I did some digging and discovered numerous restaurant rewards programs offered to students holding great FINAL report cards with grades in the A-B range! Many of these restaurants are part of franchises with local owners (and may, or may not participate at their discretion), so please call before showing up to collect your report card rewards!  Personally, I keep a copy of my kids report cards and just ask when we get to our summer destinations. Finding some of the places on the list really surprised me! See what your neighborhood eatery has to offer for report card rewards!
