Laura MCCarthy from a parent:  Is there a way to work the rewards so more students get rewarded (certificate for all students or…..parents can donate for a gift bag)

o  Challenges include not knowing which student are randomly chosen for the gift card/bag and how/who would coordinate figuring out which students did not get one but their parents donated.  Seems too challenging to me (Katie O’Donnell).
