Parent Helpful RJ Reminders and Updates

Parents: Help Keep Toys at Home

Our Bulldogs have lots of learning to do and growing too,

Unfortunately, toys from home can get in the way of the learning to do!

Our teachers and campus have many incentives and behavior & character rewards for students, so helping to keep toys and Pokemon cards at home, it helps us keep our focus on learning and growing and celebrating the growth together.

Attendance Matters: Every Day Counts

September is National Attendance Awareness Month, a time to celebrate and emphasize the important role school attendance plays in ensuring our students receive quality education.

Consistent attendance:

1. Boosts academic performance and grade-level proficiency.

2. Fosters social connections and peer relationships.

3. Encourages responsibility and a sense of routine.

4. Reduces the risk of falling behind and feeling overwhelmed.

Remember: attendance matters and absences add up!
