March 19 - 23 is Attendance Awareness Week at Hillcrest. There will lots of great incentives and events to communicate the message that Attendance Matters while rewarding students and families to make an effort to be at school every day.
The week will begin with us awarding students who had perfect attendance during the 2nd trimester period as part of our School-wide Awards Assembly on Monday, March 19. We will host another raffle/drawing to give away a pair of Beats™ headphones to a lucky student with perfect attendance. We will also raffle off and a $40 gift card for a family of a perfect attendance student.
These Monday awards will serve as inspiration for students to complete the Attendance Awareness Week Challenge! throughout the week. Students will be encouraged to not miss any days that week so that Hillcrest can experience its first ever100% attendance week in the school's history. Scholars will have additional chances to earn challenge prizes since every student arriving on time on select days during the week will earn a raffle ticket to win some fun items.
Finally, we will host our monthly Walk to School Wednesday on Wednesday, March 21. We will repeat the last route we walked starting at the intersection of Nicolet Ave. and August St. at 7:35 AM.
This is sure to be an amazing week where a number of Hillcrest Scholars are celebrated for both awesome attendance and great academic achievement.
