Where Children Learn and Grow!
Believes in YOUR Child
“I believe that all children in pre-school through 12th grade deserve and have a right to a highly effective teacher each and every year they are in school.” – Lori Weiss, Principal
“I believe that every child deserves a classroom environment that meets their individual needs by challenging and supporting them to grow beyond where they are.” - Melissa McKinsey, Outreach Coordinator
Your Attendance Counts
FACT: Every 26 seconds, a student drops out of school. By 9th grade, missing 20% of the school year is a better predictor of dropping out than test scores.
If you think on day out of school is just a day, think again! The days add up quickly. The Get Schooled website has developed an “Attendance Count Calendar,” which you can use to see the effects of missing school based on the number of days your child is not is school. The results just might surprise you.
