Attendance Matters - Every Student, Every Day

Attendance matters to your child's success! Make sure your child is at school every day. Did you know that missing just 2 days of school a month means a child misses 10% of the school year? Poor attendance can influence whether children read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade. Absenteeism and its ill effects start early. Learning happens everyday! You must be present to learn!

What a great first week of school! It was so fun to see all of our students again, and we are so excited about our new friends joining us.

During these first couple of weeks, a lot of important papers will be going home, so please be sure to check for those.
