The Kumon Center of Elgin - West, Student Incentives
Although the strongest motivation to succeed is the drive from within, external motivation is also an important recognition of the ongoing accomplishment of our students.
Students at the Kumon Center of Elgin - West are eligible to "learn and earn" as they study. Students earn stickers for completed assignments (completed, graded and corrected to 100% accuracy); when the sticker maps or passports are filled, Kumon Dollars are earned. Students also earn Kumon Dollars when they take and pass their achievement tests at the conclusion of each level of study. Additionally, Reading students earn Kumon Dollars when completing all 50 entries in their "Book Tracker" journals. When a student has earned five Kumon Dollars, s/he may redeem them for a $10 gift card to any of several local stores.
We host an annual Student Award Ceremony around our Center's anniversary, recognizing all student accomplishments through the year, including G by 5 recipients, Program Completion recipients, Advanced Student Honor Roll recipients, and students studying the higher levels in both Math and Reading.
Finally, students who complete the entire Math Program or the entire Reading Program earn a signed and framed diploma and a $500 cash scholarship towards their future academic studies.
It is rewarding to study at the Kumon Center of Elgin - West!
