WMISD : Keep your child on track in Middle and High School. Pay attention to Attendance.
Did you know: Students should miss no more than 9 days of school each year to stay engaged, successful and on track to graduate.
By 6th Grade, absenteeism is one of three signs that a student may drop out of high school.
By 9th grade, attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores. Missing 10%, or 2 days a month, over the course of the school year, can affect a student's academic success.
What you can do: Make school attendance a priority
Help your teen stay engaged and communicate with the school
This is a reminder that tomorrow, Friday December 16th, we will be having our holiday dinner. We will be making homemade chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes and applesauce. Students may bring in a drink of their choice. Also, remember it is Pajama Day for our 15 Days of Festive Fashion Fun.
Today’s middle school boys basketball game at Houghton Lake has been cancelled.
ACES DAY: What is it? In 1989, a physical education teacher created Project ACES (All Children Exercise Simultaneously). ACES Day takes place each year on the first Wednesday in May as part of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month along with National Physical Education Week. Since 1989, millions of children from all over the world exercise together to promote proper health and fitness habits. With the obesity epidemic facing the youth of the world, children's fitness plays a major role in fighting heart disease. Our PE team wants to engage students and staff in this worldwide event! We are registered for ACES which means our school is committed to providing an opportunity for all of our students to exercise at the same time! We will be celebrating with a quick kickoff assembly on the practice field and walk around town!! ACES Day, Fun Runs, the Combine, Fuel Up events, sports camps and clinics, and Wellness Wednesdays along with other activities are all ways we are celebrating and promoting health, wellness, physical activity and community with our students!
Details: Wednesday, May 4th @ 2:15 (Bad weather, Plan for Thursday the 5th)
We will gather on the Practice Field and receive a map of our walk. Staff and students K-12 will walk. High school first, Middle school next and the elementary will go last. Come down town and cheer us on!!
