Strive for Five
Every student needs to be in class EVERY day. Schools are starting to measure every absence rather than only unexcused because every absence has an impact on school success.
We have challenged our students to miss fewer than 5% of the school year. Five percent EQUALS less than 9 days total for the school year. That's one day a month.
Students who meet this goal will be rewarded by celebrations, incentives, rewards, competitions, and field trips. We want them to know that they are doing it right!
Students who are chronically absent miss more than 10% of school and we know this can lead to detrimental outcomes for kids, including a decrease in school test scores, anxiety and social problems arise, high school dropout and crime rates go way up.
Help your student have LIFELONG success by making appointments outside of school hours, planning vacations around the school calendar, and making sure your student is really sick with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher before you let them stay home.
Thanks for helping your student Strive for Five!
