Word of the Day Calendars

Vocabulary is a significant predictor of reading comprehension. “Indeed, one of the most enduring findings in reading research is the extent to which students’ vocabulary knowledge relates to their reading comprehension.” (Osborn & Hieber, 2004)

We will continue with our Monthly calendars to be used across all grade levels throughout the school. We try to read the word of the day with the definition every m orning during announcements. We also send home a paper calendar for your refrigerator for practice at home!

Information on Attendance
Narragansett Elementary School wants to ensure that all students fully benefit from their education by attending school regularly. Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Your student can start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Consistent attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.

DID YOU KNOW?
*Starting in preschool, too many absences (excused and unexcused) can cause children to fall behind in school. 
*Missing 10 percent (or about 18 days) increases the chance that your student will not read or master math at the same level as their peers.
*Students can still fall behind if they miss just a day or two days every few weeks.
Being late to school may lead to poor attendance. 
*By 6th grade, absenteeism is one of three signs that a student may drop out of high school.
*By being present at school, your child learns valuable social skills and has the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with other students and school staff.
