W.I.G. (Wildly Important Goal) #1: 97.3% Attendance Daily

We met our goal all three days last week!
  • Wednesday: 100%
  • Thursday: 99.1%
  • Friday: 98.86%

We have set three WIGs this year. One for attendance, one for math proficiency, and one for reading proficiency. We've started tracking our attendance goal.

Last year's attendance was 96.8%. Our highest since we've been open is 97.3% so we're aiming for that again.

If you're not here, you're not learning. If you're not learning, we're not making an impact. Be here on time every day you can!!
