RAYSup Incentive Program

RAYS Incentive Card Program (Tier 1)

What: An incentive program focusing on personal goals and personal growth in academics, behaviors, and attendance. 

 Who: ALL Sumner students are eligible for a RAYS Incentive Card.



  • Each Sumner student is eligible to participate by picking up a RAYS Incentive Card from the SAO office or at lunch beginning 4/15/24 (Absent students can pick up cards from student affairs.)
  • There are eight (8) goals on the card (first 2 rows) that students can work towards during Quarter 4.  (Five of the 8 goals for Access students.) There are five (5) Bonus goals.  Students have the entire quarter to reach their goals.
  • Students who complete the eight (8) goals will bring their cards to lunch beginning May 13th for verification with Mrs. Windheuser and her team. 
  • Only Mrs. Windheuser, or Team member, can hole punch the completed goals, beginning on May 13th.
  • Bonus Goals can substitute for any of the eight goals listed.
  • The completed Incentive Card earns that student admittance to our RAYS Incentive Party on May 17th during 8th period.

What happens next? 

  • The process will be repeated for Quarter 1 for the 2024-25 school year. 
  • Students who earned eligibility for Q3 and Q4 of 2023-24 school year will have additional perks on their Q1 card in the fall.


Can a student get a replacement card if they lose it? Yes, see Mrs. Windheuser or the Student Affairs Office.

Can a student not pick up a card at first, but then decide later to participate? Yes, see above.

What do I have to do as a teacher? Only encourage students to participate and encourage them to reach those goals!

When do the criteria begin for Quarter 4? Monday April 15th.

When do students get cards verified? At lunches beginning May 13th.

I have students who arrive on late buses, will they be ineligible for the “less than 5 tardy” goal and the “on time to school” goal? Yes, students who ride late buses are EXCUSED tardy to 1st period, these will not count against the student. 

Please reach out to Mrs. Windheuser directly with any questions.  Thank you for supporting our RAYS Incentive Card Program!
