Plymouth Students Shop for Gifts with Kindness Points
Plymouth Middle School opened a special holiday shop to reward students students for acts of kindness.
Throughout the year students earn a special currency called PAWS whenever they did something nice. Friday, they got to spend the points buying presents for themselves or other people. Staff and parents donated items ranging from pencils to phone cases, and one even brought in a metal detector to sell.
Student organizer Natalie Storlie says the store made the holiday season even more special.
“It’s just kind of fun to come in here and not go to class, and just organized with my friends. That’s really fun.”
Plymouth students have other opportunities throughout the year to spend their PAWS money, so there’s always an incentive to keep being kind.
