Parents Can Help Support School Values at Home Using PRIDE Tickets
     A great idea came out of a parent conference I had with the Transformers that I want to share with you all. In order to support the student following the school values at home, we decided to have the child be rewarded with incentives at home by using PRIDE tickets. Some ideas of how this could work: 10 tickets buys 30 minutes on the computer, 5 tickets buys ice cream after dinner, 50 tickets could buy a pedicure with Mom. This is a fantastic way for the incentives at home to support good behavior at school. Please contact me if have other thoughts or ideas about PRIDE tickets at (510) 879-2100 or at
