From the Assistant Principal's Office.......

  • Greetings from the Assistant Principal,

    As the school year progresses, sometimes the combination of the weather, and the stamina required of the content, leads to students missing school days. As members of the school community, it is imperative that we all stress the importance of attendance.

    Research has indicated that missing as few as nine (9) school days a year can have a negative impact on learning and education. Attendance in school builds skills and habits that translate into the working world.

    The benefits of consistent attendance are numerous. They include overall improvement in academic performance, building a sense of commitment to school and the community, supporting social emotional wellness as well as socialization. Our students benefit from the structure and routine that school can provide with regular attendance.

    Our goal is to build a strong academic foundation for our young people. When students attend school regularly, those foundations expand into confidence and exploration. School is a safe environment for students to explore and grow. Consistent and regular attendance can support the skills necessary for success.

    As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email or call (315) 589-9665.

    Middle School Assistant Principal
