Durfee students receive new “Get Schooled” T-Shirts as Round 1 winners of Get Schooled Attendance Campaign

Round 2 ends March 14!
Make sure your students check-in daily!

The 7th and 8th grade students at Durfee Elementary-Middle School are donning new “Get Schooled” t-shirts after winning Round 1 of the Get Schooled Attendance Campaign.

More than 90 shirts were delivered to the school from Viacom. Durfee students were also recently invited to participate in a Get Schooled Focus Group – thanks to their remarkable participation rate in the Attendance Campaign – to give Get Schooled officials a few tips on “How Students Learn Best.”

Highlights from the campaign:

  • Durfee Elementary-Middle School was the winner of Round One! Durfee had 90 students sign up, and they ‘checked in’ over 1,000 times – which means they had every student check in every day of the challenge!
  • Detroit Collegiate Prep at Northwestern had the most students sign up during Round One, 243 total! (but had fewer actual daily check-ins)
  • Damonte Fluker from Detroit Collegiate Prep at Northwestern was the national winner of an autographed James Harden (NBA star) basketball with a personal quote as to why he is an “all-star” from Harden.
  • Students active on the Get Schooled website can also cash in at the reward store at any time. Items in the reward store (now and in the future) include:
    • PlayStation 4s
    • More Monster DNA Headphones with colors that include Rose Gold, Black Tuxedo and All-Black Carbon Fiber
    • SAT study guides
    • The book “Divergent”
    • Get Schooled Swag
    • T-shirt – Text Me, Blue Pencil Tee
    • Snapback Hats – Black, Navy, Gray
    • Michigan State Swag Packs
    • James Harden Signed Houston Rockets Snapback

Additional content and contests on the site over the next several weeks include:

  • Hip-Hop SAT (the winner of the best rhyme integrating a pre-selected set of SAT/ACT words gets Monster Headphones)
  • Scavenger Hunt
  • Mind Games (new questions coming soon)
  • Book Club – “Divergent”
