ATTENDANCE MATTERS! 

Did you know that even if your student is only a few minutes tardy to school it can add up to missing instructional time that could affect your child’s progress with reading and math? Even 5 minutes a day can add up to 900 minutes or 15 hours of lost instructional time in one school year. 

 

Arriving On Time for School and Class: 

  1. Makes sure that your child doesn’t miss out on the important learning activities that happen early in the day when they are most alert. Early morning learning activity is often reading or writing and your child can lose so many opportunities to learn these critical life skills. 
  2. Helps your child to learn about routines and commitment. 
  3. Gives your child time to greet their friends before class and this can reduce the possibility of disruptions in the classroom. 
  4. Class disruption can make your child feel uncomfortable and can upset other children. 
  5. Arriving on time every day makes children feel good about themselves.

 

ACTIVITIES: 

 

Sept 12: PTA meeting 1:30

 

Sept 14: Leader of the Month assembly 2:15

 

Sept. 19: Vision screenings

                JSD Family Fun Fair 5:00-9:00

 

Sept. 22: School Community Council meeting 5:30
