As Grewenow and KUSD stresses all the time good school attendance is a crucial part of student success at school. This February, we have a handful of incentives to encourage students to have PERFECT attendance.

In February, the Milwaukee Bucks sponsor a program called Attendance matters:

Any student who has perfect attendance will receive a FREE ticket to a Milwaukee Bucks basketball game AND a complimentary meal from Wendy's restaurant!

Your student will also have the opportunity to shoot a post-game free throw on the Bucks Court!
