Attendance Goals

We are working as a campus to reach an end of the year attendance goal of 96.5. Each month, we calculate each grade levels attendance rate. Here is January's data:





4th-97.4%-exceeded our goal

5th-97.1%-exceeded our goal


As you can see, overall, we are barely below our goal of 96.5%. Thank you for having your students here at school!

Perfect Attendance

A big shout out to Mrs. Turrentine, Ms. Davis, Mrs. Patterson, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Strawn classes for having perfect attendance for 17 days! Classrooms earn a letter for each day that their class has perfect attendance. Once they spell out "perfect attendance" they get a big shout out and a special treat. Congrats to these classes and we have many more that are close to reaching the goal! A special shout out to Mrs. Florez's class for reaching this goal twice!!!!

Please join us on Feb. 21 for Fit Night!! First 100 students get a free water bottle!
