From Matthia Kelsey
Give the Gift of Attendance this year!

All families want what is best for their children, but they don???t always realize how absences can add up to academic problems. Sometimes they allow children to miss school when it???s not absolutely necessary. This often happens before and after the winter holidays, as families try to squeeze a few more days out of the vacation season. Principals and teachers have an opportunity to reduce holiday absences by ensuring that parents and students understand the toll that absenteeism takes on achievement.

Encourage teachers to talk to students about the importance of showing up in the days before and after the holiday break.

Plan a special event for the first day after the holiday break. If possible, create a contest or find ways to recognize good attendance.
