*Reward Store is open each Thursday during After School. Students can spend their hard-earned Fortress points on treats such as snacks, small toys, school supplies, etc. But they're encouraged to put their points in the Fortress bank and save towards field trips to places such as Bass Hall, college basketball games, and even Chick Fil-A with two friends and the Fortress teacher of their choice. Students who save their points earn interest on those points and learn how real savings works!

*Each afternoon, our main room is filled with the laughter and joy of mentors and their mentees. Adult mentors spend 1 hour each week at Fortress hanging out with their mentee, enjoying crafts, board games, reading, and even homework time. It's all about relationship! Well... that, and having fun. :-)
