Thanks to each of you who have made
student attendance a priority.
The students are enjoying the dog tag rewards and
hearing which grade level has perfect attendance on the
afternoon announcements each day.
We are working hard on improving our CCRPI score.
This score is how we are compared to other schools in our
state. Attendance is a big component of the score and when a
child misses 6 or more days of school (whether excused or
unexcused), we are marked down on this score.
Thank you for helping make attendance a priority.
Each year, we develop a School
Strategic Plan (SSP).
Our goals for the year are in the areas of Reading
and Math. Some
of our specific strategies include:
Double Specials each day to provide teachers with an
additional block of time for collaboration and planning,
intensive professional development in the use of student
data to guide instruction, students using Study Island and
First in Math computer based programs, extended day tutoring
for select students, as well as a laser sharp focus on
student and staff attendance.
We appreciate your continued support of your child in
our educational journey together.
