PTSA Sponsors Incentive Awards Luncheon

Last Friday, for the first time, an Incentive Awards Luncheon was held by the Bowditch PTSA in honor of the 45 Bowditch students who received Incentive Awards for the 1st Quarter of the 2018 - 2019 school year. Incentive Awards are given quarterly to students who exhibit commendable behavior, enhancing the overall quality of life at Bowditch – either through outstanding personal progress or contributions to the classroom and/or campus experience. Some examples of character traits valued: working hard to improve in class, participating in the classroom in a noteworthy way, helping a teacher or fellow student in some way, contributing to a greater sense of school spirit and pride, and seeing a need and filling it.

We had a little bit of song & dance and quite a lot of pizza, dessert & fun! The Bowditch PTSA is proud of these 45 students and looks forward to sponsoring similar luncheons at the end of the 2nd & 3rd Quarters.
