Have you ever earned one of these Golden bucks? A Bronc Buck is a golden slip that teachers or staff give to you when you do a good deed. But what is the history behind Bronc Bucks, who started them and why?

Bronc Bucks were not the original name of these slips, before the CMS mascot were the Cougars, but last year, in 2017, we changed to the Broncs and Fillies. CMS had Cougar Cards, but they were just a slip, no reward. When Mr. Couture became vice principal he created the cougar card cafe. He created the cafe to acknowledge the positive, like someone including others, the small things. Things that wouldn’t be recognized before, would now be noticed. The Bronc Bucks are a reward.

When a student does a good deed they get one Bronc Buck, students can save up their Bronc Bucks to get a bigger prize, or they can cash it in right away. The biggest prizes are: a team of students choosing to play a game against the CMS staff, a certificate for a free dinner for their family, or a favorite staff member takes student and a friend out for lunch. The biggest prizes cost 20 Bronc Bucks with the lowest prize costing one Bronc Buck.

    One of the things I noticed about Broncs Bucks is that I see a lot of kids do great deeds, but they never seem to be recognized when the teachers are around. It just seems like the kids that come to school and do the right thing all the time never get any.
