ATTENDANCE AWARENESS and INCENTIVES
Did you know that children can suffer academically if they miss 10 percent of the school year? That’s just 18 days or 2 to 3 days a month. And research shows us it also marks the point when students start to fall behind academically because they have missed too many days.
SST is celebrating with a renewed push to get all kids to school—on time, every day. Research shows us that absences add up. That’s as true for kindergartners as it is for 12th graders. It’s as true for excused absences as it is for skipping school.
We know there will be days when your child will miss school, especially when they’re sick. But we know that nationwide, as many as 7.5 million students miss 10 percent of the school year? That’s 135 million days of missed school – and missed opportunities.
Let’s work together as a community to get all kids to school – on time, every day. The school will organize events, run contests, and incentives to raise the attendance awareness among the students and parents.
Dear SST Parents and Students, PICTURE DAY for this year will fall on Friday 10/31/14.
This will be an in uniform picture so all students must wear the school uniform for pictures that day. Please remember that you must pay with a check/money order in order to purchase your pictures.
SST will be sending out the order forms closer to the actual date. If you are interested in preserving your SST memories with a picture please be prepared for 10/31/14. If you have any questions about picture day please contact school front office at (210) 804-0222
