Parents Gain Insight From Breakfast Attendance Workshop

 

Breakfast.jpg  

Last Wednesday, Sept. 17, Hamilton parents and students met for breakfast in our Parent Center to discuss attendance concerns and solutions.  The participants received invitations based on the number of absences their student accrued last year.

The group, led by Hamilton Program Specialist Danyett Armstrong, first watched a video, then considered crucial points:

  • The classroom instruction time that students lose due to absences really does add up.
  • Research has shown that missing just 18 school days per year drastically sets students back academically.

The group then brainstormed ways to help students get to school on time.  Among the ideas offered:

  • Parents can help each other by carpooling with others in their neighborhood.
  • Students can make sure they get to bed on time in order to wake up and be prepared.
  • Parents can schedule doctor’s appointments either before or after school.

In a  survey taken at the end of the workshop, parents said it had given them new insight on the consequences of student absenteeism and how to combat it.

If you would like to participate in our next workshop like this, or if you are interested in what was presented, please call Ms. Armstrong at (562) 602-0302 ext. 226 (email DSArmstrong@lbschools.net).   The PowerPoint slide show that Ms. Armstrong gave also contains useful and interesting information.  You can download it by right-clicking this link.

Hurray for Hamilton Students & Staff!

Have You Heard This Good News?...

Each year our Safe & Civil Schools Committee polls students to see how they feel about Hamilton.  Our faculty and staff review these answers for guidance to create an ever-better teaching and learning environment.

The latest numbers are cause for celebration.   From 4 out of 5 to nine out of ten students not only feel safe at Hamilton, but they also recall their lessons on good behavior, and acknowledge Hamilton teachers for motivating them to do excellent work.  Here are some details:

teacher-at-desk_alpha.png Hamilton Kids Appreciate Our Teachers!  Over five out of six students give Hamilton teachers a nod for making sure they know how to get help if they fall behind.  And more than four out of five say our faculty members motivate them to do their best work. Terrific!
