initiative whereby, upon staff recommendation for a positive student act
(i.e. citizenship, act of kindness, improved school work, excellent
academic program), the administrator and the student track down a
parent to tell them of the good news. Last year, our goal was 100
such phone calls and we are on our way to improve this goal by 5%.

training program. He would like to get a college scholarship in the US,
