The all new Ram Buck Store has opened at Worth County Elementary School. Students are able to visit the store prior to 8:10 each morning to cash in their Ram Bucks. A variety of items can be purchased using Ram Bucks. Students could save up Ram Bucks all year and actually purchase a brand new bicycle! According to Dr. Steven Rouse, Principal of Worth County Elementary School, students earn Ram Bucks by completing levels in the Lexia Reading and Symphony Math programs. They are also rewarded with Ram Bucks for Honor Roll, Perfect Attendance, and for being selected as a Character Education Student of the Month. Additionally, teachers give out 20 Ram Bucks each week at random to students for displaying appropriate behavior and good grades. Written by VaLenia Meeks Milling
