Character Pledge

Today is a new day.
I will improve myself.
There are no limits to my personal success.
I will! I can! I must!

Pledge recited every morning, school-wide, lead by Mrs. Alabanza-de la Cruz, School Counselor, during Morning Announcements. Along with reminders of the month's Character Counts! focus.


QUICK FACTS:
Chronic Absenteeism(missing more than 10% of days enrolled for any reason)is the single strongest predictor of dropping out before graduation.

Students who drop out are more likely to be poor, unemployed, have substance abuse problems, be teen parents and be involved with the law

Students who miss a month or more of kindergarten are more likely to perform poorly in 1st grade, particularly in reading

By 6th grade, a pattern of chronic absence is a predictor of high school dropout rates

Research shows that a student's success in 9th grade is directly linked to the likelihood the student will successfully graduate high school with a diploma by 12th grade
