To reward students for achieving improved scores on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) test, Lantern Lane Elementary School administrators, counselor and campus specialists agreed to get soaked in a dunking booth. Administrators challenged the students in grades 3-6 to pass the TAKS with a score of 80 or higher. The students met the challenge in the “ALL students” group and; so, they were rewarded with the celebratory event, sponsored by the school’s Parent-Teacher-Organization.
Additional grade-level challenge rewards included:
• Third Grade – a teacher and administrator dance-off
• Fourth Grade – Mrs. Lewis doing a back flip and teachers dying their hair funny colors
• Fifth Grade – a pie in the face of teachers and teachers dancing the “Dougie” along the hallways
• Sixth Grade – teachers singing a rap and dancing the “Jerk” A PTO sponsored party for 3-6 grade levels.
