Not being at work or at school and trying to find excuses not to work will only deter any suc- cesses for which one is striving. That is why parents must encourage and demand their children to be at school every day. Being at school every day develops important skills children will use for the rest of their lives: responsibility of knowing'they must be a at school; keeps on top of all demands of school and not falling behind; develops a posi- tive attitude; creates a sense of pride of always being at school;enhances learn- ing and workability. We all know and understand that students will be absent for one reason or another and we work with parents when these problems arise: sickness, emergencies, and/or uncontrolled cir- cumstances. But beit~ at school ev- eryday will only bentJ["tljt all students' learning ability. The QPA/No Child Left Behind law requires that all schools report a 90 percent attendance rate. Mankato Schools will not have any problems attaining that required goal, but I would like to see our attendance percentages as high as possible and I hope that each and every parent supports us in reach- ing that goal. Last year we had a 96 percent attendance rate For the first month of school we now average ap- proximately seven students absent pet day, which is a 94 percent attendance rate. Good job, parents. But we can do better. Attendance is important in educat- ing our students. Let's work hard to increase the 94 percent attendance rate we now have. Come on, folks. I know you can do it.
