If you were in charge of the Dunfee School, what is one thing you would NEVER change

Nora Hansen (First Grade)

“I would never ever change giving our R.O.A.R. tickets because it shows that you’re being good and it is fun to get prizes if your name is called on Friday. I love R.O.A.R. tickets!”

Kyz’merah Joshua (Fifth Grade) (new student)

“One thing that I would never change is our ROAR system. I would never change our ROAR system because it gives everyone a chance to show how they can be a good student. Also because it goes with the feeling of this school like when you arrive at the school you feel this rush of positive energy and warmth. Another thing is how we have a dragon mascot. It fits with our ROAR and that’s why I would never change our ROAR system.”

MadeeRusssomanno (Fifth Grade)

“It was a tough decision, but if one thing was able to stay it would be R.O.A.R. tickets. When you receive a R.O.A.R. ticket, you feel good. If you are seen doing something good and are rewarded, you feel like you do get rewarded for good behavior, not just punished for the bad. I truly hope, R.O.A.R. tickets keep on going throughout the years and as long as the Dunfee Elementary School stands.”
