September - Attendance Awareness Month

Attendance matters!

Click here for 10 facts about school attendance.

How parents can help:

  • Set a regular bed time and morning routine.
  • Lay out clothes and backpacks the night before.
  • Know Bryant's start/end time and school-year calendar.
  • Don't let your child stay home unless they are truly sick. Keep in mind complaints of stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home.
  • if your child seems anxious about school, talk to teachers, school counselor, and or other parents for advice on how to make them feel more comfortable and excited about learning.
  • Stay in contact - always call, email, or send a note about your child's absence.
  • Develop a back-up plan for getting to school in case something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or another parent.
  • Plan family trips and medical appointments during school breaks.
  • Provide verification for medical excuses (doctor, dentist, therapy, counseling, etc.)
  • Help your child plan goals and work to achieve them.

Box Top News

There are big changes that happened to the Box Top program. Please see the attachment for specific details. To summarize, Box Tops is slowly phasing out clipping. Instead, they are asking parents to download the app and scan receipts when you purchase items that contain Box Tops. You will continue to see Box Tops on your favorite items until all brands have made the switch. Please continue to look for, and clip, those tops!

Reading Challenge

If you didn't get one of these at Smart Start, the file to print at home is below. Or you can also pick up a hard copy on the bulletin board in the main entry. Work on this reading challenge at your own pace at home. You can have fun making combos. When all of the circles are colored in, turn it in to the main office and I will come to your classroom with a book cart for you to choose a brand new book from Scholastic!
