Compass Attendance Flies High!
Our Compass monthly attendance average has exceeded the district goal of 90% or higher for 5 out of 7 months, during the 22-23 school year! THANK YOU parents for helping your child achieve by being at school. Although only three months of the school year remain, there’s still LOTS to be taught/learned, state assessments, celebrations, and continuation of looking at universal assessment data. Please keep your child’s attendance HIGH.
Here are ways to help your child be school ready:
Set a regular bedtime routine
Develop a morning routine
Pack backpacks the night before
Encourage your child to be at school
Plan appointments after school, when possible
