    Join our Winter Attendance Challenge campaign!

    Attendance Matters!

    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:
