HTMS participating in Attendance Awareness Month
From staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — Hewitt-Trussville Middle School is promoting Alabama Attendance Awareness Month for the month of September.
Students who achieve perfect attendance will be rewarded. Hewitt-Trussville Middle School students who have no absences, no check-ins, no check-outs and no tardies from Sept. 1 through Sept. 30 will get a special reward. Only students who achieve perfect September attendance will be eligible.
The Alabama State Department of Education has proclaimed September to be Alabama Attendance Awareness Month in support of a national campaign to increase the understanding of educators, parents, students, and community partners of the major impact school attendance has on the successful rates, academically and behaviorally, of students.
By promoting Alabama Attendance Awareness Month, students and parents can become more aware of the need to be at school, on time, every day.
