Welcome to Overdale
Dear Parents and Friends of Overdale,
Over my six years of being principal of Overdale, we have increasingly improved our attendance. Last year, for the first time ever, we received the Elementary Attendance Trophy for 2 months. That was a real accomplishment and I applaud you for making sure that your children were present and on time each day.
However, this year our attendance is not doing as well. Several of our students are late every day. Some of our students schedule doctor and dental appointments on school days and do not return after the appointment. Also, some of our families have scheduled family trips during school days. While I realize that some of these circumstances are unavoidable, I think that many could be prevented with some advance planning. We have several built in days throughout the school year and summer for vacations and special appointments.
There is a very strong correlation between attendance and academic achievement. Therefore, I am asking for your help and support in this matter. We will be having some incentives for the classrooms in each grade level every month who have the highest attendance along with our regular incentives for individuals that are currently in place.
Thanks in advance for encouraging attendance and importance of education in your child’s life. Education is one of the keys to success in their life.
