Dear Parent or Guardian,
We are going to kick off a new attendance reward plan at McKinley Elementary. We want to reward our students for their efforts to maintain good attendance. According to our plan all students who have “Almost Perfect Attendance” will receive a new bicycle at the end of the school year. Almost Perfect attendance means that a student can miss no more than one day of school and still get a bicycle. So, we are planning to give away lots of bikes.
We are also going to reward students who have good attendance, but maybe miss a day or two more than one day. Students who attend consistently, but miss 2 to 5 days still have great attendance and will be entered into a drawing for cool prizes. Some of these prizes include a $50 gift certificate, a drone, a $25 gift certificate, and other fun prizes.
Finally, all students who have no more than 8 absences for the year will get to attend a “Great Attendance Dance & Ice Cream Party” at the end of the school year.
We will start counting attendance toward the contest on Monday,October 3rd. If your student has already missed days of school this year, no sweat. Everyone gets a fresh start on Monday.
Best of luck!
McKinley Almost Perfect Attendance Committee
P.S. The Attendance Committee reserves the right to make decisions regarding the awarding of prizes in special or unusual circumstances. Excessive tardiness, early departures, or other events that cause students to miss a lot of school could impact a student receiving a prize. For questions please contact the school.
