PE Star Student of the Week 8-22-14

This week’s star student has a very kind heart.  He is a very respectful student.  You can always depend on him to do the right thing even when nobody is watching.  He is a very trustworthy student that treats everyone the same.  Great job Jesaiah L. and keep up the great work!

There’s no better time than the beginning of the school year to encourage students to be in school on time, every day. Last September, there were 604,312 recorded absences in our state. For the entire 2013-14 school year, there were 7,024,152 absences, equal to more than 49 million hours of missed instruction and learning.

Poor attendance can start as early as kindergarten and continue to affect achievement through high school. Chronic absenteeism is missing 10% (18 to 20 days) or more of school for any reason. Research indicates that attendance is a major indicator for students eventually dropping out of school. 

Therefore, September has been proclaimed “Alabama Attendance Awareness Month” in support of a national campaign to increase the understanding for educators, parents, students, and community partners of the major impact school attendance has on the successful rates, both academically and behaviorally, of our students.

Please do what you can to make sure your child is in school EVERY DAY!

8-15-14 PE Star Student of the Week

This week’s star student has done a great job at starting off the new school year.  She demonstrates to her classmates how to listen and follow directions.  She has a very kind heart and is willing to make new friends by treating everyone equally.  I am proud to have her at our school.  Great job Emma H. and keep up the great work!

Thanks, Dr. Buck for the Student Workshop!

 Fifth and sixth graders attended a workshop hosted by author and national presenter, Dr. Frank Buck. He shared many tips and tricks to staying organized. Managing your time, even as an elementary student can be difficult. Dr. Buck shared ways that students could handle big projects, be prepared for school each day, and feel more confident. R. L. Young is very appreciative that he took time to stop by and share such helpful information with our students.
