My Students

We are an inner city community school where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. In addition, our school is made up of a variety of cultural backgrounds. For most of our students, English is not their primary language. As a result, our students face challenges both in and out of the classroom.

Despite the challenges they face on an everyday basis, my school is always looking to provide our students with meaningful learning experiences to increase attendance.

My Project

Regular attendance at school is vital to help children achieve and get the best possible start in life. As a result, our school goal is to decrease chronic absenteeism.

Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways we can prepare our students for success - both in school and in life.

As a school we are trying to engage students and parents in a positive way. We currently have monthly Perfect Attendance ceremonies to recognize our students from grades PK to 5th grade who did not miss a day of school for the entire month. Our school needs more Perfect Attendance certificates to keep these ceremonies going. The Perfect Attendance ceremonies are a family event to recognize and celebrate the attendance success of our students, since daily attendance is an important part of education.

Thank you for believing in the importance of attendance!
