Dear Killbuck Families,
I am constantly amazed at how quickly the weeks are passing. We are fast approaching the end of our 2nd Grading Period. The students have been very busy during the months of October and November. Students enjoyed learning and coming to school each day. Each day the students are gaining more knowledge. We currently have 92% of the students able to Identify all 52 Letters of the Alphabet! Way to go students, parents, and teachers for all of your hard work.
During the Month of November students learned about Veterans. At this time I would like to say a special thank you to Mrs. Miller for taking the time to help educate the students about Veteran’s Day. Also, a special Thank you to all Veterans who have served our country.
In partnership with you, educating the children of our community.
Sharon R. Buchanan, Principal
Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare your child for success—both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a priority, you help your child get better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid dangerous behavior and have a better chance of graduating from high school.
When students are absent for fewer days, their grades and reading skills often improve—even among those students who are struggling in school. However, when students are absent for an average of just two days of school per month—even when the absences are excused– it can have a negative impact. Students who miss two school days or more per month often have difficulty keeping up with their peers academically and tend to fall behind in reading. Students who attend school daily and are able to read on grade level are more happy and successful in life.
