    Mav Money Market

    Our MAV Market is open for business! Throughout the year we teach our students what it means to be a MAV:

    • M = Make Meaningful Relationships
    • A = Accept Feedback and Adapt
    • V = Value Ourselves and Others
    • S = Show up Ready to Learn

    Students who demonstrate these skills are recognized with MAV Money! MAV Money is an electronic system and it allows us to keep track of how much MAV Money each student gets. This week our MAV Market opened. Students were able to “buy” items using their MAV Money. On our first day of the Market, 58 students cashed in 1,045 MAV Money tickets! If you have any items you’d like to donate to our MAV Market, we are taking donations! The MAV Market will be open again this Friday!
