Our school is fully committed to supporting all students toward making regular attendance at school a high priority! To encourage individual and team-level commitments for making daily attendance a priority, our school coordinates (2) reward programs to recognize students which have been generously sponsored by community leaders and local vendors.
Individual student attendance is being tracked monthly and (2) students from each grade-level will be recognized through a drawing of the highest level performers (i.e. 0 - 1 Days Absent) that receive individual prizes from our program partners. Congratulations to our March honorees who are listed below:
April Individual Attendance Winners
Gr. 6 - Mason Burns & Ivy Hamby
Gr. 7 - Elena Frye & Jesse Hart
Gr. 8 - Megan Marlatt & Adam Ferris
*Winning students for the month of April were each awarded Hometown Days passes.
Our team or classroom-level monthly award was recently hosted for the First Hour classroom that had recorded (95%) attendance through the targeted month. The winning classroom received an honor luncheon and had the traveling banner posted outside their classroom to exemplify the teamwork involved (See the Braggin' Banner featured in the upper righthand corner of this webpage).
Our monthly winner (April) for Best First Hour classroom attendance was Mrs. Card's classroom who finished the month with (95%) attendance. Their award luncheon was hosted on Thursday (5-16-19), thanks to the sponsorship of Swartz Creek Board of Education Treasurer - Mr. Michael Ahearne. Mrs. Card's students enjoying the recent luncheon are featured in the photos below:
We also have a sponsor for a class with 100% attendance for the entire Semester Two for a field trip on the Appledore Schooner out of Bay City.
Questions regarding programs or offers for sponsorship can be directed to our Attendance Improvement Program leader:
