School attendance is vital to stuents' achievement. Students who develop patterns of good attendance are much more likely to be successful both academically and socially. Attendance Matters!
When students attend school they get better grades, and score better on standardized test. It is our responsibility to teach students the importance of attendance now so they are prepared for the future. Parents and guardians are responsible for ensuring that their children attend school daily. When parents are at work, students should be safe at school.
Please visit the school’s computer lab and work with our volunteer Homework Helpers every Wednesday from 2:45 to 3:45 pm.
