HUNTS POINT - An incentive to get students at a Hunts Point elementary school to be on their best behavior is running low on supplies.
Students at P.S. 48 earn tickets from his or her teacher for following the rules. Once a student has earned enough tickets, they can exchange them at the school's treasure chest and choose a prize, but supplies are running desperately low.
PTA President Sandra Dejesus, who runs the treasure chest at P.S. 48, says that she's having a hard time keeping the shelves stocked with prizes for students.
Administrators say since the school's treasure chest opened, they have seen improvements in their student's behavior and performance.
News 12 is told that all of the prizes in P.S. 48’s treasure chest are donated. A GoFundMe account has been created to help with prize donations.
