On Jan. 11, students from our 11 elementary schools gathered for the annual Martin Luther King Jr. program. This was the 33rd year of the program, and more than 36,000 fifth graders have participated over the years.
Here's a glimpse of this year's program:
The Winter Attendance Challenge was created to stress the importance of sending your student to school every day possible.
Every year in our schools absences spike in the weeks before and after the winter holidays as families squeeze in a few more vacation days. It has been proven that just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and put your child behind in school. This is true for all students — kindergarten through high school. Put simply, too many absences at any age can affect a student’s chances for academic success and eventually for graduation.We'd like to thank the staff and families who encouraged students to make every day count, and the students who made it happen. Our randomly selected winners are:
ATLAS - Benjamin G. • BORAH - Samantha J. • BRYAN - Ella W.
DALTON - Gabriella N. • FERNAN - Boston S. • HAYDEN MEADOWS - Kalia M.
NExA - Cadence B. • RAMSEY - Wyatt W. • SKYWAY - Mariah K.
SORENSEN - Callahan K. • WINTON - Isabella T.
CANFIELD - Katrina H., Avery B., Isabella E.
LAKES - Ashley C., Skyler H., Dominic V., Zoey L.
WOODLAND's winners will be announced in an assembly the week of February 12th
CHS - Eli D., Alex H., Katherine L., Callia T.
LCHS - Auna Leah B., Dakota T., Darian C., Dylon M.
VENTURE - Nataniel S., Coby C., Jazmynn S., Tatum B.
Help us convey the message that attendance matters each and every day throughout the 2017-18 school year!
