MARCH 2019
Note from The Principal

Greetings Eagles!

Attendance Matters! Students who attend school regularly have been shown to achieve at higher levels than students who do not have regular attendance. This relationship between attendance and achievement may appear early in a child's school career. A recent study looking at young children found that absenteeism in kindergarten was associated with negative first grade outcomes such as greater absenteeism in subsequent years and lower achievement in reading, math, and general knowledge.
 
Poor attendance has serious implications for later outcomes as well. High school dropouts have been found to exhibit a history of negative behaviors, including high levels of absenteeism throughout their childhood, at higher rates than high school graduates. These differences in absentee rates were observed as early as kindergarten, and students who eventually dropped out of high school missed significantly more days of school in first grade than their peers who graduated from high school.
 
Any absence, whether excused or not, denies students the opportunity to learn in accordance with the school's instructional program, but students who miss school are sometimes further excluded from learning opportunities as a consequence of chronic absenteeism.
 
We encourage parents to ensure students are here every day, all day and on time.

Teach the importance of fairness at home by:

  • discussing how to accept the consequences of misbehaviors
 
Remember:
 
Being fair means knowing both sides of the story.
Being fair means treating others like you want to be treated.
Being fair means avoiding cheating and lying.
Being fair means respecting the rights of others.
Being fair means following the rules at home and at school.

The Arts Make a Difference in Academic Success!
 
Rhodes School for the Performing Arts Fine Arts Program introduces and develops student to the arts in order to propel them into higher heights academically and creatively. Arts education helps students improve visual analysis skills, learn from mistakes, be creative and make better critical judgments

Arts Participation and academics have a positive impact on student achievement:

15% higher GPA . Students involved in art or music throughout high school had average GPA's exceeding 3.0, as compared to students with no art or music classes averaging GPAs below 2.6

Visual Arts: 38% higher graduation rate.  Students with no visual arts credits in high school graduated with a diploma 67% of the time. However, high school art students had a graduation rate of 93%.

Music: 34% higher graduation rate.  Students with no music credits in high school graduated with a diploma 70% of the time. However, high school music students had a graduation rate over 94%.

Music and art students stay in school.  When engaged in the arts for four years in high school, the student dropout rate is below 7%. These students are more likely to stay in school than their non-artistically-engaged counterparts.

Higher test scores.  High school music students average 8.5% higher on the SAT math and 10.4% higher on SAT verbal than students with no music credits. High school art students average 3.4% higher on the SAT math and 7.4% higher on SAT verbal than students with no art credits.
