Hello Twister Families!
WE DID IT!!! On Wednesday, February 1st, we hit our attendnce goal set for the quarter. We had 14 out of 17 days of school with less than 7% of our students absent. The teachers have really noticed a difference in their ability to teach when they have an entire classroom of students present and they aren’t focused on getting a student caught up on missed content. Thank you for helping us reach that goal! As a result, students will be celebrating their success on Friday, February 3rd, in their classroom at a time that is convenient for their grade level. Students will be rewarded with a movie and they will be allowed to bring a fluffy friend that can fit in their backpack with them! In addition, the grade level with the best attendance rate during these last 17 days will earn an additional surprise during their movie.
The goal setting doesn’t stop here! We will be increasing the goal to 20 days beginning next week.
Aside from our attendance goal we are also working on teaching students about keeping their “hands to self” and showing that they “CARE ABOUT OTHERS” in the process. This year our students have
struggled with this concept and we encourage you to have a conversation with your student at home about the importance of keeping “hands to self” as that will help with the spread of germs, allow others to feel comfortable at school, and reduce the number of discipline referrals. Any reinforcement you can provide at home is greatly appreciated.
