SCORE

SCORE, a signature program of the Foundation, is a fun and engaging way to support students’ physical, social-emotional and academic outcomes by meaningfully recognizing and acknowledging their positive behaviors displayed and developed in and out of the classroom.

The SCORE program rewards students through an exciting and unique set of Sixers branded swag items and experiences that were identified by a focus group of students, teachers and PBIS teams. From autographed memorabilia, to Sixers “gear,” to visits and lunch parties with the Sixers Dunk Squad, to a few other “surprise” experiences, students as well as teachers and school leaders will have the chance to SCORE.

Over 1,100 middle school students are participating in the SCORE program. Students also receive a personal journal to track their SCORE “points” earned, as well as their water intake, exercise, eating and sleeping habits. Complementing the journal and incentives are a series of educational videos highlighting important lessons around healthy habits, as well as a series of lesson plans that are available on the Sixers Youth Foundation website in the Resource Library.
