Incentives and Field Trips

Upcoming Incentives

We know our PREPsters work hard throughout the year, and our incentives are one of our favorite way of celebrating and motivating our students’ hard work! Students earn participation in incentives by meeting a set of criteria during the “incentive window” – a period of time before the incentive. Please use this information to excite and encourage your student to be their best self in the coming weeks!

Upcoming Field Trips

Engaging field trips are a big part of the Kauffman experience. All students participate in a college visit in the fall, and have the opportunity to earn an overnight field trip in the spring. Other field trips are offered throughout the year as incentives or based on opportunities that arise.

 

There are no additional upcoming field trips. Check back later for more information and permission slips!
