4th Quarter... Let's Finish Strong with Attendance!

The Attendance Incentive Program was designed to build awareness about the importance of good attendance and to help students understand how tardiness and absences can negatively impact their success. 

Some of the components of the our Attendance Incentive Program include: 

A traveling trophy that will be awarded to classes with the highest weekly attendance. There will be two trophies awarded each week: K5-5th grades will have one trophy between their classes and 6th-8th grades will have one trophy between their classes. Each week, the classrooms with the highest attendance for the week prior will receive the traveling trophy.

Each month, the classroom with the highest attendance in the school will be awarded a pizza party!

Classroom winners and attendance statistics will be announced each Monday in the newsletter and during morning announcements.

As excited as we are to begin this new program, we want to remind families that if students are feeling ill, they should be kept at home. 

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Ms. Langen at (414) 525-6175 or you can reach her by email at langen@ics-edu.org.
