Attendance Matters

 

Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school and themselves.

Missing just two days a month means a child misses 10% of the school year. That's 10% less learning, smiling, growing, and achieving.

Attend Today. Achieve Tomorrow.

Back to School Night

 

Please join us for our Back to School Night, Wednesday, September 5th!  This is an opportunity to meet your child's teacher and hear about important information regarding your child's classroom.   Hope to see you there!

The times below are for the times your child's classroom will be open:

6:00-6:40 pm: 3rd, 4th and 5th Grades (in your child's classroom)

6:40-6:50 pm: Transition Time

6:50-7:30 pm: TK, Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Grades (in your child's classroom)

"Showing up” every day and on time makes a difference for students.

September is Attendance Awareness month all over the country.
Why? Studies about school attendance show that “showing up” makes a difference:

· Attending school regularly helps students feel better about school and themselves.
· Learning good work habits early will support their success in life.
At CUSD, we value our parent and community partnerships. Positive school attendance is a joint effort of home and school.…
