It was a success! On Friday March 2nd, all 201 students that had perfect attendance during the fourth six weeks were released during 5th period to participate in Perfect Attendance Bingo. A hand full of students won cash prizes. Many others won gift cards to various local restaurants. Everyone had fun!
Our campus has been promoting the 5th six weeks Attendance Race. Weekly announcements are made reminding our students and updating them on what grade level is leading the race. Currently our sixth grade class is winning the race with 92.8% of students in attendance, followed closely by seventh grade.
After asking my site supervisor whether or not our budget would allow us to serve popcorn and bottled water to our students that will be attending the movie party, I have been informed that it can be done! I am very pleased with this news. I have given a list of popular PG movies to our librarian to review. Together we will be choosing one that we believe our students will enjoy. So far our students are pretty pumped about the upcoming parties. I hope to see continued improvement in student attendance.
