Cool Schools: Sunset Middle School

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday's COOL SCHOOL was Sunset Middle School.

Known for her innovative ideas and ability to relate lessons to real life, Ms. Erica LaFountaine Meche of Sunset Middle School has teamed up with Midsouth Bank to create a school based bank for the 7th grade Journeys to Career Students. Students will earn "JTC Cash" for their accounts based on their academic performance, class effort, and behavior which can be spent in the school's general store sponsored by a grant that Ms. Meche was awarded from Entergy.

To ensure that her students get the best that she has to offer and learn financial responsibility, Ms. Meche has also been accepted into the Everfi's Fall 2017 cohort to become a certified financial educator. No REAL money goes through the bank or store.

If you have a COOL SCHOOL, let us know. Send Dave Baker an email to weather@katctv.com. Put COOL SCHOOLS in the subject line. Include a picture and a short story about why your school is COOL. We do COOL SCHOOLS every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday!
