    attendance awareness month


    While September is Attendance Awareness Month, our district’s pledge is to create a culture of achievement for every student, every day, all year long! This year, our commitment is to continue to provide a safe learning environment while we focus on re-establishing good attendance habits and family connections.

    “Showing up” is a valuable life habit – it represents more than attendance, it’s an attitude – it’s showing up, being present, and being engaged. It’s also a great way to celebrate the start of our new school year. According to the research, attending school every day possible:

    • Helps kids get back on track and recover lost momentum
    • Promotes student learning and increases chances of graduation
    • Helps kids feel better about school and themselves
    • Improves mental health through socializing, developing friendships, building   empathy and forming lasting relationships with peers
    •  Allows for a personalized learning experience that keep students from falling behind

    Evidence shows when families and schools have strong relationships, children are more likely to stay in school, graduate and do well academically and socially. With you and your family on our team, we will successfully prepare, educate and inspire every student.

    Thank you for your dedication to show up all year long!

    Como septiembre es el Mes de Concienciación sobre la Asistencia, el compromiso de nuestro distrito es crear una cultura de éxito para cada estudiante, todos los días y ¡durante todo el año! Este año, nuestro compromiso es continuar a ofrecer un ambiente de aprendizaje seguro mientras nos enfocamos en restablecer buenos hábitos de asistencia y conexiones entre las familias.

    “Presentarse” es un hábito de vida valioso: significa más que asistencia, es una actitud: es aparecerse, estar presente y participar. Es también una excelente manera de celebrar el comienzo de nuestro nuevo año escolar. Según los estudios, asistir a la escuela todos los días posibles:

    • Ayuda a los niños volver a la normalidad y recuperar tiempo perdido
    • Promueve el aprendizaje de los estudiantes y aumenta las posibilidades de graduación
    • Ayuda a los niños a sentirse mejor acerca de la escuela y de sí mismos
    • Mejora la salud mental a través de la socialización, el crecimiento entre amistades, la creación de empatía y la formación de relaciones duraderas con los compañeros
    • Permite una experiencia de aprendizaje personalizada que evita que los estudiantes se queden atrás

    La evidencia muestra que cuando las familias y las escuelas tienen relaciones sólidas, es más probable que los niños permanezcan en la escuela, se gradúen y les vaya bien académicamente y socialmente. Con usted y su familia siendo parte de nuestro equipo, vamos a poder preparar, educar, e inspirar con éxito a cada estudiante.

    ¡Gracias por su dedicación para presentarse durante todo el año!
