We are continuing to celebrate greatness daily throughout the 2019-2020 school year. As we continue to strive to offer the very best in education, Northwest Early Elementary will be operating under the theme, “Every Day Counts!” This continued attendance theme will incorporate efficiency from the staff in the planning for engaging lessons and student attendance. As a staff we will be working diligently to monitor student attendance, as well as, assist families with strategies and resources to ensure student attendance. Students with perfect and nearly perfect attendance will be recognized at our monthly reward assemblies. We are asking for all community members to encourage your students or the students in your neighborhood to attend our community school everyday that they are healthy.
Chronic absenteeism is defined as missing 10% or more of school days due to absence for any reason. National studies have shown that 1 in 10 children in kindergarten and 1st grade are chronically absent. When a student is not in school regularly, they miss out on the fundamental building blocks of reading and math skills. Every day counts, with your continued support we will overcome any barriers in education and offer the very best in education.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mark Short, Principal
Paula Louagie, Assistant Principal
