Rise & Shine, Get to School on Time

Research is clear that showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic and social success starting from kindergarten and continuing through high school. Absences can be a sign that a student is losing interest in school, struggling with school or even facing social challenges. Missing 10% (or about 18 days of a school year) can drastically affect a student’s academic success. By the 6th grade, absenteeism is one of three signs that can indicate if a student is at risk for dropping out of high school. In the 9th grade, regular and high attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores. Beginning in November at LoES, we will periodically distribute neon-colored Eagle Wings to students arriving on time (before 8:55 am) to school. Our intent is to provide an incentive for students arriving on time to start the school day. We are seeking the support of our parents and families to get our students to school each day before 8:55 am.
