Prompt: What is the most interesting facts you learned today?

In the book, AARON JUDGE" by Jen M. Fishman the most interesting facts I learned was that Aaron Judge had a home run that went 501 feet farther than any hit in the MLB derby. My evidence is in the book it says "One of his homers went 501 feet (53m), farther than any hit MLB have ever recorded!! Aaaron Judge also hit 23 home runs so he advance to the next round. My evidence is in the book it says "Judge hit 23 homeruns in all to advance to the next round." I found all of my evidence on page 6-7. Now you know the most interesting facts I learned in the book "Aaron Judge" by Jen Fishman.

Praise! Nice job. Nice job using evidence from the text, restating author and title.

Attendance UPDATE

The realistic goal is to have less than 5% chronically absent, but ultimately 0%. Chronically absent is defined as being out 10% of the days in school. This data impacts our STAR rating. Currently, we are at 14% chronically absent. Currently, we have the top 40 schools of all RI schools. Keep up the great work!
