Have you ever asked this question? We bet that you’re curious about it now!
Propel McKeesport 7th grade student Jaylynn Dunlap steps in as today’s guest blogger and lets us all know that being a part of McKeesport’s NerdHerd is a GOOD thing!
Soon, students in the “NerdHerd” will be participating in going to the Carnegie Science Center. To be in the “NerdHerd,” you have to have all A’s and B’s in everything. It’s not all about having good grades, you also have to have good behavior and attitude. To stay in the “NerdHerd,” you have to keep those good grades and behavior. At the end of each mid-term, the members of the “NerdHerd” participate in a party. This makes the 7th and 8th grade students want to act better and work even harder.
7th and 8th grade students at Propel McKeesport are also incorporated in Education City. Education City is a school-based program that assigns people who work hard to have a school job. To apply for a job at the school, you must have good behavior. Some of the jobs you can apply for are:
You will get an application to complete. You’ll be interviewed by someone as if it were a real-life job. Like in real life, you can be fired from your job. If you get into trouble, you could be fired. This inspires us, builds our confidence and our standards so we’ll know what to do in the future.
Overall, in each 7th and 8th grade class, we’re learning more and more about how hard work and good behavior can pay off!
