School attendance is critical to learning and required for advancement from one grade level to the next; however, there are many challenges that students have faced that block students from virtually attending school. Attendance has declined as schools remained closed for COVID-19 safety. Educators are reaching out to parents and the community for help encouraging students to remain engaged in their classes.
The “Every Day Matter” campaign features a contest inviting students to design a logo encouraging attendance, with a top prize of an Apple iPad and pen. For more info regarding Student Contest Visit the TPS Parent Connect Site or click on this link https://forms.gle/t7wBqqwXammmAqDm6.
In addition, families are asked to join the TPS Parent Connect Site www.trentonk12.org/connect.aspxoffering important information, as well as updates on student attendance and grades and contacts for Student Services, and Family and Community programs. Families also can download the free TPS app and learn more on the Attendance Works website.
The kick-off event is sponsored by Aramark, ETS, and the Princeton Area Community Foundation.
