HOUSTON (CW39) When kids do well in school, they always love being rewarded for it. Well a new project makes those rewards even more exciting, by creating a fun incentive, to do a great job, all of the time.
Houston Random Acts of Kindness Day (RAK Day) Founders, Treveia and David Dennis, in partnership with the Houston Independent School District (HISD), HISD Wraparound Services Department, and sponsoring business partner Yellowland Records, will reveal the first of several student incentive-based “RAK Rooms” on Monday, August 15, 2022, at 10:00am at Paul Revere Middle School (10502 Briar Forest Drive) in Houston!
The cool, colorful “RAK Rooms” are incentive-based school stores and resource rooms designed in collaboration with community partners to address the needs of children and reward good behavior! The rooms are like real stores, but designed just for kids, and students earn digital RAK Bucks/RAK Points for good behavior, attendance, anti-bullying, participation, and other accomplishments in order to shop for and purchase cool, new items like shoes, clothing, bikes, scooters, games and more!
Each RAK Room is being designed by renown Interior Designer and Craftsman Gino Vian in collaboration with local businesses who have partnered with RAK Day to supply store inventory and whatever is needed for the room.
Monday’s debut RAK Room at Paul Revere Middle School is sponsored by Yellowland Records owner Twiler Portis and her hip-hop Recording Artist son, Jimmy Bolt! The RAK Room will feature some very cool concepts to inspire kids and some amazing items students will be eager to earn rewards for! Yellowland and RAK Day are also planning special events and surprise treats for students in the RAK Room on a regular basis to further encourage positive behavior and good habits.
