Join another Merkel ISD StepBet challenge starting Monday, September 19th! Stepping into Fall with Jen's Journey Games runs Sept 19th - Oct 30th $40 to join Sign in with the StepBet app using game code: jensjourney There are weekly gift card giveaways!!! We are doing it a little bit different this time. Instead of hosting a StepBet, we are going to join a game already set up so there will be more players and, therefore, opportunity to win more cash.
The challenge is open to Merkel ISD staff, parents, community members and friends. It's a fun 6-week game where we'll motivate each other to stay active and possibly win a little cash in the process. To join , FIRST...download the StepBet app on your smartphone.
Then, type in the game code jensjourney on the app.
The first week is warm-up (practice) week, so you won't be eliminated during the first week. Weeks 2-5, you must complete 4 active days and 2 power days each week to stay in the game. It is a great motivator to get off the couch and get moving! It's $40 to join through the StepBet app via PayPal or credit card. If you meet your weekly goals and stay in the game until the end, you get your $40 back, and possibly a little more money if people don't make it to the end of the game. See StepBet Rules - Payouts for more information (link below).
For questions and to find out which activity trackers are supported, please see the links below. Rules are here: StepBet Rules F AQs are here: StepBet FAQ Hope to see you in the game! [Tuesday, Sep 20 at 7:45 AM] Reminder: You can still sign up for the StepBet until Sunday!

Districts Across Texas Stand with the Uvalde CISD Community Today It started in Tomball ISD, then Aldine ISD, then TASA helped spread the word on Friday, and by last night, we saw that nearly 100 districts and ESCs (and those are just the ones we saw!) had pledged to show support for the Uvalde community today by encouraging students and staff to wear the district's colors: maroon and white. Today, Uvalde CISD opens its doors for the fall semester. We wish the community strength and peace as they return to school. Across the state, we stand with Uvalde in our maroon and white. See #UvaldeStrong.
We know you have been waiting for some information, and we have it ready for you.
