What is the Meadows Student Store and why do we have it?
The Meadows Student Store is a PTA-sponsored program that takes place approximately once a month during the school day (a few times/year for Kinders). Not only is it super fun, but the Student Store also teaches kids the value of money, encourages good SKORR behavior, and lets them practice their burgeoning math skills in a “real world” store environment.
At Meadows Student Store kids can purchase fun items such as themed pencils, stickers, pens, erasers, figures, small toys, etc…. using SKORR cards and/or their own money brought from home.
Items at the Student Store are priced between 1 SKORR card/$.10 and 10 SKORR cards/$1. The odd time we will have a couple special, more expensive items that are 20 SKORR cards or $2.
When does Student Store happen?
It happens over lunch break and occurs on the 2nd or 3rd Thursday almost every month. Dates for the 2021- 2022 school year are now set so look out for communications letting you know when they are happening. A date change does occur sometimes due to holidays and other school events, so be sure to read the Mustang Minute and all Room Parent emails for any upcoming dates or changes to the schedule. This way you can be sure your student is ready to go with their SKORR cards prepared and at school for the day of Student Store. It now will take place outside the Meadows cafeteria.
What are SKORR cards and how does my child use them
at Student Store?
SKORR cards are certificates given to students by teachers, aides, staff, and PTA committees as a reward for showing Safe, Kind, On task, Responsible, and/or Respectful behavior. They have a monetary value of 10 cents when used at the Student Store.
Do SKORR cards expire?
In the past they have not, but because we have a year and a half gone by that we haven’t had Student Store AND SKORR cards have continued to be earned, all SKORR cards will expire at end of June 2022. Beginning next school year all SKORR cards will have a date on them. They will be good for the entire school year but cannot be carried over to the next year and saved year after year.
Am I allowed to use my siblings SKORR cards, or a
friend that no longer goes to Meadows?
No. It’s our belief that YOU get to spend a SKORR card because YOU did a wonderful job to earn it.
It’s my child’s birthday month! Do you do anything special?
Yes! If your child lets us know, we’ll give him/her a special “Happy Birthday” pencil to celebrate. Those with a birthday in a month that we are not in school can receive it at our last Student Store of the year in May or June.
