Celebrating 100 Days of Perfect Attendance

 

 

 

Miss Theela Rodriguez’ kindergarten class at North Heights Elementary and Mrs. Rosalinda Simon’s first graders at Ruben Chavira Elementary School have one great thing in common. Both classrooms have reached an impressive 100 days of consecutive perfect attendance! On Wednesday, SFDRCISD Superintendent Dr. Carlos Rios and local businessman Skip Baker stopped by the campuses to congratulate Miss Rodriguez, Mrs. Simon and their students for their exceptional motivation to attend school and their ability to reach this huge milestone. Impressed by their pledge to be at school every day, Mr. Baker presented each child with a gift card for a free buffet at Gatti’s Pizza.

 

Since the 2017-18 school year, San Felipe Del Rio CISD has worked on initiatives to improve and maintain high attendance in schools. Over the past two years, these initiatives have resulted in better overall attendance in all District campuses. In fact, many teachers, like Miss Rodriguez and Mrs. Simon, have taken on challenges to reach group goals for motivating their students to come to school every day. SFDRCISD has also expanded incentives in order to recognize the highest overall attendance on a Zero Absence Day and at the end of the 6 weeks academic period. Campuses who demonstrate the highest attendance are always rewarded with bragging rights to the District Attendance Trophy for an entire six weeks – that is, unless they remain the campus with the highest attendance for the following six weeks. This month’s Zero Absence Day is scheduled for Friday, February 15th and the end of the 4th six weeks will end on Friday, February 22nd.   

 

SFDRCISD extends its heartfelt congratulations to Miss Rodriguez, Mrs. Simon, their students and their parents for their tremendous accomplishment.
