In the BC Dome we have recently constructed an Attendance Incentive Contest Bulletin Board for the month of February. It tracks how many classrooms have perfect attendance days in February. Last year’s data showed February was our lowest attendance month for the year. By having a contest it should make everyone aware of how important and fun school can be. Each day a class has everyone here they get a star and a certificate. When a class reaches 10 or 20 perfect attendance days there is a bigger reward. An extra recess will be given for 10 days of perfect attendance and for 20 it’s a class party.
Please remember children experiencing fevers of 100.3 F., throwing-up or have had diarrhea must stay home and be free of illness for 24 hours. Children with coughs or running noses must be able to handle those symptoms by coughing into their elbow or wiping their noses. When children are having these issues and need medicine it can be dropped at the office and paperwork needs to be filled out. Let’s see how we do in February.
