Rincon Rotarian James Mandolini delivering gift cards to Rincon High's Office Manager Juana Ambrose, Multi-Tier System of Support Facilitator Debra Summers, Principal Alissa Welch.
Debra Summers of Rincon High School asked the Rincon Rotary for gift cards to use as incentives in a Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports program. She made a detailed case that this program could result in fewer behavior disruptions, resulting in increased student learning and a more pleasant school experience.
The Rincon Rotary was excited to participate in this program to improve school climate and academic performance by providing gift certificates to local and national stores including Bookmans Entertainment Exchange and Guadalajara Grill.
Rincon Rotary's support is part of its Rotary Local Program, whose mission is to help improve the local community through educational outreach. Rotary Local can provide manpower, resources from local business partners, or in some cases, direct financial support to teachers who apply for assistance.
