Attendance: For second and third graders, it is of the utmost importance that ALL students arrive to school on time and are in attendance daily, which is no later than 8:30 a.m. Keep in mind that the accumulation of three tardies are equal to one absence. Fifteen or more absences are considered excessive and may lead to retention.

Community Service Opportunities: Please ask your teacher how your student may take advantage of community service hour opportunities in and around the school. Third-grade students are required to give 15 hours of service during the school year. Likewise, parents and guardians may satisfy their volunteer hour commitments (15 hours per family) through the classroom, school-wide events and through the PTO.
