December Overview

This marks the first week of December and begins the 13th week of school. December is one of our shortest instructional months with only 14 days of student attendance. We need to maximize every opportunity for learning, so let’s surpass our goal of 98% and shoot for 100% attendance.

Christmas Contest

Homerooms that have perfect attendance for all 14 days of December will have a party on Friday December 18, 2015
