Attendance Counts! In our effort to protect instructional time for our students, we've started tracking student attendance. Here are Mitchell's February attendance results: PreK - 94.75%, Kinder - 95.90%, 1st Grade - 95.62%, 2nd Grade - 95.13%, 3rd Grade - 97.21% (Best Attendance Results), 4th Grade - 95.76%, and 5th Grade with a 95.80% . The class with the best attendance in February is Mrs. McReynolds' 3rd Grade with a 97.66% attendance. Congratulations to Mrs. McReynolds and her students!! Third Grade Rocks! For two months now our 3rd graders have had the best attendance!
Perfect Attendance Rocks! Let's get on the "band" wagon for perfect attendance. Research shows when students attend school regularly they have better academic performance and better grades. Students earn rewards for on-time daily attendance. At the end of each Month the Prize Patrol will distribute the earned rewards to all. The incentive program begins January 14th. Be a Super Star - on time, all the time, everyday!
Be advised there will be no transportation changes for your students after 2:00 pm. If transportation changes are necessary, please call the office (943-1820) before 2:00 pm. You may also send a note to the teacher. We will require all students to have documentation of these changes with a note or through the office via phone. We are unable to depend on students to communicate these changes to teachers/office staff without parent documentation. This will assure that all students are returned home safely.
