Gold Tickets" for being Ready, Respectful, and Responsible.  The students can then use the gold tickets they earn to participate in special events including: inflatables, school dances, fun day, and sponge throw.  At the beginning of each school year, Joppa Elementary School faculty and staff review the Ready, Respectful and Responsible Expectations.  As the year progresses, these concepts are reinforced as students begin to achieve "Gold Tickets."
