Our district attendance goal is 97%! But we know we can do better than that! Let's aim higher! We can do it! Research shows that student attendance has a major impact on how well a child does in school. Each week that a class reaches perfect attendance (including NO TARDIES!), our classes receive one letter in the word ATTENDANCE. When the class has completely spelled the word ATTENDANCE, the class receives a prize. Please see the website for more details. Our students and teachers worked very hard to have perfect attendance each day.
Tardies continue to be a great challenge. As we tell the students, "Don't be late; be here BEFORE 8:00!" The exterior gates are close at 7:55 a.m. Any students arriving after 7:55 a.m. will need to enter through the office. As long as they are in their classroom before 8:00 a.m. the students are on time. We understand that it is often very difficult to get your children up and to school every day, especially during the cooler winter months, and we definitely cannot have excellent attendance at our school without you. We appreciate your assistance in helping our children to be responsible and learn the good habit of punctuality and promptness. The GREAT news is the Saturday Attendance Academy does work! Please see the Saturday Attendance Academy block for more information!!!
