Did you know that you can help your student(s) earn fun individual, class, and grade-level prizes? That’s right. We have an incentive program that rewards students for excellent attendance. And we want to partner with all of you to help us make it happen! Here are the details:
Program Dates: First Term — Starts September 5th- October 26th
Individual Incentives: Cotton Candy party for every student with Perfect attendance and no tardies for each month of the term. Held on last Friday of each month, last 10 minutes of school. Teachers will be notified of who is invited. Medical absences do not count against students.
Class incentives: Traveling trophy for homeroom with best monthly attendance “Punctual Pigeon” (ongoing). Continue to display your “My Class Had Perfect Attendance Today” sign outside the classroom door too.
Grade wide incentive- A “SILLY SODA AND SOCK HOP” party at the end of the term for the grade with the best attendance.
Here are a few things you can do to help us improve attendance at our school:
- Make it a family priority. Talk with your kids about why it is important to attend school every day and arrive on time.
- Make a morning schedule with your child. Create a routine that allows time for all of the morning activities (including time needed for dropping off in the sometimes busy parking lot).
- Excuse absences within 1 week of the date of the absence.
Also, attached is the district policy regarding attendance. Thank you for your support.
