Eastern Kentucky School Offers New Type Of Reward

LOUISA, Ky. (AP) - It's the called the Hard Work Cafe. The room at Lawrence County Middle School is decked out with a flat screen TV and visitors get to munch on pizza and slushies. But the room is only for top students.

It takes hard work and perfect attendance to get on the guest list. The program started this year, and is designed to encourage pupils to work hard at school.

Principal Tom Castle says teachers recommend one student in every class to visit the cafe, which is open Fridays during lunch, each week. He says students must be considered hardest working in his or her class, have perfect attendance for the week and free of disciplinary problems.
