Benefits of daily attendance

By attending class regularly, your child is more likely to keep up with the daily lessons and assignments, and take quizzes and tests on time.

There are other benefits as well:

  • Achievement: Studies have shown that students who attended school regularly were more likely to pass reading and math assessments than students who didn't attend school regularly.
  • Exposure to the English language: Regular school attendance can also help students who are learning English by giving them the chance to master the skills and information they need more quickly and accurately — even in other subjects!
  • Being part of the school community: Just by being present at school, your child is learning how to be a good citizen by participating in the school community, learning valuable social skills, and developing a broader world view.
  • The importance of education: Your commitment to school attendance will also send a message to your child that education is a priority for your family, going to school every day is a critical part of educational success, and that it's important to take your responsibilities seriously — including going to school.

March Makerspace STEM Activities will consist of the following:

Wind Powered Maze
Rainbow Bridge
Leprechaun Trap

Quarter 4 Attendance Reward

Students who receive PERFECT attendance will be rewarded with a Carnival that will take place during the school day.
