New Miniterm! Attendance Matters

We began our 3rd miniterm on Tuesday, October 18. The miniterm goes from 10/18/22 to 11/16/22. That is only 22 school days, so students must be in classes to get the instruction they will need to pass their classes. Attendance is one of our most important vital behaviors where we tell students, "most students, who are not successful, are not successful because they simply choose not to show up. When you show up, you have already won half of the battle." -from the Vital Behaviors Handbook at https://landmark.nebo.edu/content/vital-behaviors.
