We have a wonderful program called MERIT "Meeting Expectations Realizing Individual Talent." Students earn points for anything from perfect attendance, straight As, all As in citizenship, even joining our after school clubs, sports and enrichment classes. Even attending a BBMS sporting event can earn points! They all start out as Citizens, and by working their way through the system, they become Council Members, Mayor, Governor, Representative, Senator, Vice-President, and ultimately, President! Each level requires a certain number of MERIT points to earn that level. Each level adds more privileges, such as choice of a premium locker (only offered at the very beginning of the year), fast pass for the lunch line, permission to be in halls before school, and onward. Attached is the information regarding this program.
