Attendance Improvement Program

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 September honorees who are listed below:
         December Individual Attendance Winners
              Gr. 6 - Breanna Simpson & Lauren Wagner
                  Gr. 7 - Matthew Bobb & Zane Parks
                  Gr. 8 - Caleb DeMott & Matthew Kirschenbauer
*Winning students for the month of December were each awarded passes to Spymaker Escape Rooms.
Congratulations to our proud winners of the December Attendance Awards!
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 highest performing classroom for November was Mrs. Wingblad's First Hour who had their celebratory luncheon this past December 19th (see photos below from Mrs. Wingblad's First Hour class luncheon). 
Special thanks to Farmer's Insurance Co. - Chad Orvis Agency who sponsored the this luncheon. 
Congratulations to Ms. Bell and her First Hour class for winning the classroom-level monthly award for having the highest daily average attendance (95%) for First Hour during the month of December 2018.  Her class will be treated to an honor luncheon later this month which will be sponsored by Central Assembly PCG Church.
