Today we launched Star Cards.
Every time you get a raffle ticket, we punch a star in the card which has your name and room number on it. To earn a Star Card, you need to earn a raffle ticket from the Toesday (Tuesday) Hands-Up count. Every Toesday we do a Hands-Up count with every class and if you chose Active Transport you get a raffle ticket.
With our first day of Star Cards, Room 11 is out in front with the most Star Cards (9).
