Perfect attendance

The girls ended their first semester and both Caroline and Elizabeth had perfect attendance.  Today was an award ceremony for perfect attendance as well as six other classroom awards such as a Kindness Award and a Super Reader award.

My girls were very pleased with themselves!
About 50 more students were called from just the 3-5 grades.  About 1/3 of the school's students had perfect attendance which really pleased me (and the principal!).  I think school is so important that almost nothing should keep children away from school except medical appointments, sickness, and very important family events such as weddings or funerals.  Anything else on the part of the parent is either bad or lazy parenting or both.
