What's Good: Rhino Bucks and Store

6/12/2024 9:01 am

What do fidget spinners, Taki’s, Doritos, Capri Suns, stress balls, plush animals, hair brushes, and Croc shoe charms have to do with student success?  Everything!

 

For the past few years, students have been receiving Rhino Bucks, which are distributed by their teachers as a reward for their hard work and good behavior. Teachers have the ability to recognize positive actions and reward them in a tangible way. Rhino Bucks are a crucial component of the school's dedication to enhancing social-emotional learning and promoting positive reinforcement.

Students have earned Rhino Bucks by:

  • Hard work
  • Good deeds
  • Manners

At our school, students can exclusively utilize their Rhino Bucks at the Rhino Store. Money is not an acceptable form of payment, ensuring a level playing field for all students, regardless of their socioeconomic status. The Rhino Store, conveniently located beside the cafeteria, offers an array of snacks and enjoyable items that are popular among junior high students. We always encourage students to suggest new additions to the store, and we make sure to implement them whenever feasible.

 

The PTA takes pride in supporting these initiatives by offering supplies and volunteer assistance through the Rhino Store, open every Friday during lunchtime.

 

Get involved by purchasing items for the store off our Amazon List!  They will get sent directly to the school!

 

Volunteers Needed: Sign up

  • Weekly, 3 volunteers each lunch period manage the store, lines, and the fun job of helping students use their earned Rhino Bucks to select merchandise.

One-time and ongoing volunteers are always welcome! Sign up

Murals and Art at JPMS

7/9/2023 2:27 pm

Art at Justice Page Middle School is alive and well!
 
Did you know the murals on the building were done in 2019 by teacher, Elissa Cedarleaf Dahl and her students?  On her website, she also shows many of the inside murals done by her classes over the years.
 
From Elissa Cederleaf Dahl's website, "I teach a Mural Arts and Identity class at Justice Page School in Minneapolis, MN. Each school year, students work on collaborative murals to beautify our school and develop our identity- both individual and collective."  And art teacher Steven Schmitz says, "Before coming to JPS I taught a computer base art class at Marcy Open School called Graphic Arts. I have a M.Ed in Art Education, as well as a my B.A. (Visual Arts, Political Science) from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. In addition, I am a graduate of Washburn High School."
