September is Attendance Awareness Month!

September is Attendance Awareness Month, and research shows that good attendance is directly related to higher achievement in school.  Building the habit of good school attendance early is key,  and we need your help!  At the end of each month our Attendance Office sends home truancy letters to families of students who have 3 unexcused absences/tardies.  If you receive one of these letters, please contact our Attendance Office and speak with our Attendance Health Secretary Emma Williams.  Some of these absences and tardies may be excused per Board Policy.  If your child has been on an Independent Study Contract, remember that they cannot receive credit unless the work assigned by the teacher is completed and submitted upon return.

Congratulations to the following classes in each grade level who had the BEST RATE OF ATTENDANCE FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST:

  • Kindergarten:  Mrs. Farrar/Mrs. Praggastis
  • 1st Grade:  Mrs. Moller
  • 2nd Grade:  Mr. Zendejas
  • 3rd Grade:  Mr. Maes
  • 4th Grade:  Mrs. Marquez
  • 5th Grade:  Mrs. Muhlbach
  • 6th Grade:  Mrs. Martinez

Students who have Perfect Attendance for the first quarter will be honored at the Awards Assembly.

Fall Festival Haunted House Chair Needed

Fall Festival planning is in full swing, but we are in need of an adult volunteer to chair the Haunted House. The kids love the Haunted House, and would be very disappointed if it was not included in the Fall Festival. The responsibilities of the chair would be:

  • Decorating the stage to turn it into a haunted house (PTG has many supplies and can help with additional supplies)
  • Taking the haunted house down after the Fall Festival
  • Run the haunted house the night of the festival, including supervising and supporting (giving them water, breaks) our high school volunteers
  • Keep the line moving

Please consider chairing the Haunted House so we can include it the Fall Festival.

Email if you have any questions or would like to volunteer.
