Beginning this month, homerooms with the best attendance rate will be rewarded with a donut party. One homeroom per grade level will be selected every month. Attendance rate is based on both tardies and attendance so make sure you’re getting to school on time and coming to school everyday. Good luck to all of our homerooms!
Beginning In February, every student with perfect attendance each month - zero tardies and zero absences - will be entered into a drawing to win a gift basket from the school store. One winner will be selected every month from each grade level. Perfect attendance for prize baskets starts over every month so even if you don’t have perfect attendance one month, you can still earn entry in following months. The February gift baskets are displayed in the display cabinet by the front office.
The 3rd quarter reward party will take place in mid March. Start preparing now. The criteria to earn the reward is 2 or fewer late or missing assignments combined in all classes & 1 or less discipline referral.
