The Knight Thing
Hey students: get caught doing the Knight Thing by doing the right thing and be rewarded. Simple as that. Our faculty and staff are on the prowl looking to catch you in the act of doing something positive. If you are “caught” doing good,” they’ll hand you a Positive Referral Card that you can bring to the main office to redeem for a reward. Also, we have a new selection of rewards you can choose from so it’s not just a BW3’s gift card anymore. You are to redeem your rewards before or after school, during lunch or during break, and not during class time. Thank you for all you do t0o make TA the great school that it is. Now, go and get “caught” doing something positive.
