The Elementary Student Council held its annual Elf Auction on
Monday, Dec. 21. Students in 4th, 5th and 6th grade used Topper
Bucks to purchase the services of an elf for a day. Typical elf
duties include: cleaning lockers, organizing desks, carrying books,
serving at lunch, etc.
Elves sold for between $40 and $140 Topper Bucks. Students saved
Topper Bucks for weeks prior to this event. They earned the bucks
through the school’s PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and
Supports) program. Topper Bucks are earned for completing work on
time, helping others, reaching personal and academic goals, going
above and beyond, and more! The Elf Auction serves as a PBIS reward
program, giving a place for students to spend their hard-won
The elves were members of the Harry Hoag Student Council. Each of
them made an auction shirt, covered with holiday decorations such as
tinsel, garland, and evergreens. Many of the shirts had slogans
written on them, such as: “Buy Me,” “Big and Strong,” and “Help Me.”
The Elf Auction concluded with the “sale” of Elf Keagan Ford
(Student Council Vice President). Keagan’s services were sold to
Austin VanGorder for $140 Topper Bucks! The final elf to be
auctioned off was Student Council President, Tucker Jones, who came
to the floor amid chants of “Tucker, Tucker!” After receiving dozens
of bids, he also “sold” for $140 to Derek Prevost.
