Missing School? = Missing Out!

May - Elementary School – Don't miss out, every day counts! 

Absences late in the school year can be a sign that a student is losing interest in school, struggling with schoolwork, dealing with a bully, or facing some other potentially serious difficulty., please talk to your teacher or school office if you have concerns.

Mayo -  ¡No faltes, cada día cuenta!
Cuando los estudiantes comienzan a faltar al acercarse el fin del año escolar, esto pudiera ser una señal de que los estudiantes están perdiendo interés en los estudios, están teniendo dificultad con las tareas escolares, están lidiando con un bully/alguien que los está intimidando, o están enfrentando alguna dificultad seria.

Research shows that the connection between student and teacher is the single biggest factor related to student engagement, achievement, and success! The calendar for the 2016-2017 school year is posted under 'Important Links'.  We've planned an exciting school year and appreciate you planning vacations during school breaks. Student attendance and engagement will remain a focus.

¡Las investigaciones han demostrado que la conexión entre un maestro y un estudiante es el factor más grande que tiene que ver con la participación, los logros y el éxito del estudiante! El calendario para el año escolar 2016-2017 esta  publicada bajo 'Enlaces Importantes’

 El calendario para el año escolar 2016-2017, será publicado en el sitio web del distrito escolar. Estamos haciendo planes ya  para que este nuevo año escolar sea muy emocionante;  les agradeceríamos grandemente que ustedes planeen sus vacaciones de manera que coincidan con el tiempo de vacaciones de la escuela. La asistencia escolar y el mantener a los estudiantes muy involucrados en su aprendizaje seguirá siendo nuestro enfoque principal.
