Attendance HERO (Here Everyday Ready & On Time)

Mrs. Keel's kindergarten class was the first to spell out the word Perfect Attendance and have 17 days of perfect attendance. The class was treated to a popcorn and juice party and a quick fall activity. Congratulations Mrs. Keel's class!


Monday, September 25th we will recognize all students that have had 100% perfect attendance from August 3rd - September 22nd (up to our 1st progress report). Perfect Attendance means that the student is on time and stays all day. If your child is late or leaves early they aren't counted as having perfect attendance. The day before and two days after the school closure for Hurricane Irma were not counted against any child for identifying perfect attendance.
