Spring Break

posted Mar 14, 2019, 3:26 PM by Reese St. Clair   [ updated Mar 14, 2019, 3:28 PM ]

BGR-1 Families,

One of the best parts of the nearing Spring season is the opportunity to get outside and enjoy nature after a very long and cold Winter.  It is always exciting to see Spring sports get to practice outside and prepare for their upcoming contests.  As a reminder, our Spring Break begins after an early dismissal tomorrow, Friday, March 15, with the students returning the following Wednesday morning on the 20th.  I hope that during this break, you will be able to share time with family and begin to enjoy the great outdoors.

Also, if you have time, we hope you will make plans to come to the Bowling Green High School Auditorium on this Tuesday night, March 19th at 6:30 p.m. to learn more about our Bond Issue and facility needs.  Here is a link to more information about that meeting: https://tinyurl.com/y3ak9q85 

Providing that we have no more inclement weather days, the last day of school attendance will be Thursday, May 30th with an early dismissal on that day.  The only other half days the month of May is on the 1st and the 17th, which is the day of our regularly scheduled graduation. Our graduation date and time will not change.

It is always good as the weather begins to improve that we also remember the importance of consistent school attendance. School attendance is crucial. It’s one of the most important values you can teach to your child — to get to school on time and go every day. The primary goal of attending school is academic achievement and preparing students for college and career readiness. Your child’s regular attendance at school is critical to his or her understanding of the academic concepts taught in school. Regular absences and even tardiness can deny children the knowledge they need in order to succeed in their classes.

Additionally, you may be aware that our school funding is tied to student attendance.  In fact, Missouri is a unique state in that our state funding for attendance is figured by the minutes our students are actually in class.  

There are a number of actions you can take to encourage your child to have good attendance. First, show your child that school attendance is a priority. Try to avoid scheduling vacations and other events on top of attendance days. Please, try not to take your child out of school except when absolutely important. Look for dentists and doctors who can see your child on weekends or in the evenings or on days we are not in session. Avoid making medical appointments during the school day.

When we come back would be a great time to re-emphasize the importance of the school year routine.  Getting your child to bed early on school nights, and having your child eat a healthy breakfast every morning (whether at school or at home) is a great support to student success.

Establishing these routines and priorities will show your child from an early age that schooling is a priority in your household.  These subtle areas will show your child that you always respect and prioritize his or her education.

Have a great Spring Break, and we will see you all back on Wednesday morning!
