Attendance

Just a friendly reminder to make sure that your student is at school on time each day. 

School begins promptly at 8:25am.  All students should be in room 21's student line prepared to walk to class quickly so that they can begin Rodeo Session.When students walk in late, they disrupt the entire class, and miss precious learning time.

Please ensure that your student is at school on time each day!

No empty chairs, we want you there!

For every school day missed, it takes three days to make up what was taught.

Families should avoid extended vacation that require your student to miss school.

Missing School= Missing Out.

 

 

Going to school is important to me because...

 

Good attendance is important in kindergarten and first grade because: 1) children learn to read and write in these early grades; 2) reading provides the building blocks to understand math; 3) children learn how to be good students in the early years; and 4) students have fun and make friends when they are in school.
