Staff Newsletter- Week of January 30th

Tipton's Tidbits

Cub Family,

This six weeks is the period of time that we target attendance. If a student gets perfect attendance in every class this six weeks, then we do a perfect attendance party during the end of the school day. We normally have treats for the kids that we provide and allow them to come to the cafeteria and play attendance BINGO! We have BINGO cards and if the students get BINGO, then there are gift cards from many places (Subway, Walmart,Whataburger, etc.) that the students receive. Of course we understand if a student is ill, but want you to encourage them to do the best they can to be here and LEARN!

Go Cubs!

Respect Character Perseverance
