Asheville’s Fun Depot Rewards Good Grades! As a parent or teacher, it’s sometimes necessary to incentivize good grades, especially at the end of the school year. Yes, we all wish that our kids would understand how important it is to do well in school—that it sets them up for their futures and will prepare them for success in life—yet, many kids are more excited to hang out with their friends at recess or during PE than to pay attention in science class. As a result, it’s important to find creative ways to get children excited about pursuing good grades, especially when summer is on the horizon. Asheville’s Fun Depot has been helping parents and teachers incentivize their children to pursue academic excellence for nearly 13 years. The Fun Depot Good Grades Initiative, re- wards children of any age for getting “A”s and “B”s on their report card. For every “A” on a report card, a child receives $2 of game play. For every “B” on a report card, a child receives $1 of game play. So if you are at the point where you don’t know what you can do to get your kids motivated to finish this school year well, try the Asheville’s Fun Depot Good Grades Initiative, and help your child reach academic excellence. “Field Trips, Prom Parties and End of Year Class Socials” Birthday Parties!
