Attendance, Tardies, Arrival and Dismissal!
Did you know that research shows there is a direct correlation between school attendance and
academic performance? Absence from school is often the greatest single cause of poor performance. Attendance is one indicator
for the state scoring model for all schools called the CCRPI (College and Career Readiness Performance Index). For every
student who has six (6) or more absences, our score decreases. This includes students who are absent more than ½ a school day.
Now, what can you do? Of course, we want your sick child to stay at home in order to get better, but when possible, please try to
make appointments to where your child is at school at least ½ of the school day. Let’s work as a team to make LMMS stay #1 in the

An Apple (iPad) for your Teacher
Superior Plumbing and the Marietta Daily Journal (MDJ) have teamed up to give a local teacher, from Kindergarten to 12th grade, an
iPad each week of the 2015-2016 school year. The first winner will be announced the week of October 1, 2015 and then
consecutively each week through the end of May, 2016.
Parents and students can go to http://mdj.secondstreetapp.com/2015_apple_teacher/
to nominate a teacher.
Entries can also be submitted by visiting the MDJ online @ www.mdjonline.com and
clicking on the “Apple for Teachers” icon on the right
rail. The Marietta Daily Journal staff will select a winner from
the nominations each week and present the iPad to the winner.
A photo of the weekly winner with their students will appear in
the Marietta Daily Journal print and online editions.
The MDJ advises any CCSD staff who would like to participate, that they write a
brief statement, 100 words or less, explaining why they think the person deserves to be one of The Marietta Daily Journal and
Superior Plumbing’s “Apple for your Teacher” weekly winners.
Questions can be directed to the MDJ in care of this email address: Anappleforteachers@mdjonline.com.
