MR. Fred Said....
New Year's is a time to reflect, recognize and make improvements for the future. I am adding an article to the newsletter discussing an important issue for all the parents and their children in school. Attendance at school is important for every child. Each of the Roy schools is to make a huge push to improve attendance. The national statistic is: 90% of Junior High and High School students that miss more than 10 days of school, per year, will drop out of school. This is why we are addressing this issue in elementary school. We have 5% of our children who have already missed more than 10 days of school and we are not yet to mid-year. I hope as a community we can push to have our children in school every day and help raise the graduation rate for our schools. We are One Town, One Team, One Dream, and Everyone Graduates! Go Roy!
Let's have a great, fun filled, exciting, and eventful school year.
