The data shows that our Neighborhoods are providing motivation for our students and helping them move in a positive direction! Students have collected more Gotchas, turned in more community service forms, and our attendance is the best in the district!!! Also, we have had a significantly lower amount of office referrals than the first nine weeks last year!
