The Meadows Student Store is a PTA-sponsored program where Kindergarten through 5th grader students can purchase fun pencils, pens, erasers, folders and small toys, using SKORR cards and/or their own money brought from home. Items at the Student Store are generally priced between 1 SKORR card/10 cents and 10 SKORR cards/1 dollar.
For 1st through 5th grades, Student Store typically takes place on the 2nd Thursday of each month in the Meadows cafeteria during lunchtime. These dates change sometimes due to holidays and other school events, so be sure to check the Mustang Minute and the Meadows website calendar for any changes to this schedule. Dates for the 2018- 2019 school year are: October 11, November 1, December 13, January 10, February 14, March 14, April 11, May 9, and June 6.
Kinders have their very own Student Store four times per year, in the cafeteria before lunchtime. Kinder Student Store operates on SKORR cards only (no cash). Dates for the 2018-2019 school year are November 1, January 10, March 14, and May 9. (Dates subject to change—changes will be listed in the Mustang Minute!)
• What is the Meadows Student Store and why do we have it? The Meadows Student Store is a PTA-sponsored program that takes place once a month during the school day (4 times/year for kinders). Not only is it super fun, the Student Store teaches kids the value of money, encourages good SKORR behavior, and lets them practice their burgeoning math skills in a “real world” store environment.
• What are SKORR cards and how does my child use them at Student Store? SKORR cards are certificates given to students by teachers, staff and PTA committees as rewards for doing something special. They have a monetary value of 10 cents when used at the Student Store.
• 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. Students with September birthdays can get their gift at the first Student Store in October. Those with summer birthdays will receive it at our last Student Store in June.
