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!

Welcome Back!

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. We also have many after-school activities that students in certain grades can join. Our Science Club, Choir, and Game Club will be starting this month, so be on the lookout for those flyers.

In this post, I am also attaching a newsletter called The Parental Involvement Connection. It has many informative articles and resources for you. Click this story to access the link.
