Don't Miss

Being in school all day, everyday day, helps your child get the most out of Middle School.  Encourage good attendance with these ideas:

-       Explain to your son or daughter that there is no substitute for being in class.  Your child needs to be present to hear teachers explain concepts, to participate in group projects and class discussions, and to ask questions.

-       Schedule doctor, dentist, and orthodontist appointments for before or after school hours, or during vacations, whenever possible. 

-       It will be easier for your child to get up on time for school if he or she has had at least nine hours of sleep.  Set a reasonable bedtime, and make sure he or she puts away electronic devices so they aren’t tempted to stay awake to read messages or play games.

Good school attendance is vital for good school performance.  When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduating.  Good school attendance is also important because it helps your child develop habits that will help them be successful for the rest of their lives.
