September is Attendance Awareness Month!

attendance 3

During September, Teasley we’ll be participating in Attendance Awareness month.  Research shows that being in school on time improves school performance and increases a students’ chances of graduating on time.  Regular attendance in kindergarten-second grades also makes a child more likely to be a proficient reader by third grade.  When a child misses more than 6 days of school, it lowers our school’s state (CCRPI) rating.  Everyone benefits when students are in school on time!  #schooleveryday #everystudenteveryday

This month each class can earn incentives when every student is on time to school every day.  For each day of perfect attendance (no absences and no tardies) the class will earn an extra minute of recess. It could be up to 20 extra minutes at the end of the month! Classes with outstanding attendance will be recognized throughout the month and will have the chance to earn other prizes.

How can parents help?  First, if your child is truly sick, they should stay home.  However, if they have doctors’ appointments, please schedule them after school or check your child out after 11:00. Please make sure your child is here before 7:50.  Send your child to school on the bus.  Bus riders are never marked tardy.  If you are a car rider, please use the carpool line and get in line early.  The car line tends to be shortest around 7:25.

Thank you so much for making sure your child is at school on time every day!  Attendance matters and is a big part of making your child successful.
