ATTENDANCE CHALLENGE: November 4 - December 20

We are looking forward to crushing our campus attendance goal of 97%!


Students who meet this goal (November 4 - December 20) will be invited to an attendance party on Dec. 20th with admin.


To meet the goal, students can not have more than 1 absence. Leaving early or missing any period counts as an absence.


Not only does good attendance help our campus accountability rating, but it is an essential piece of academic success for all students.


If you child must be out, please send a note with them when they return (even if it is for one or two class periods).
