Important Senior information

March 12, 2018

 

Greetings Parents and Guardians:

 

Rich Central is asking for your support in making sure our senior body finishes the school year successfully. We know after three and a half years of high school, some students find it difficult to honor their commitment to their education and to finish their high school career strong. Some students “Check Out” early because they are “seniors” and they are ready to move on to the next stage of life. Rich Central has a goal of 90% or higher for attendance during this school year. Unfortunately, our senior class is falling short of those expectations. Below is a chart with their monthly attendance averages.

August

83%

 

December

82%

September

83%

 

January

80%

October

82%

 

February

79%

November

82%

     

 

Strives have been taken for incentives for successful and full attendance, yet the goal falls short. We are asking for parents/guardians to have conversations with our youth about finishing strong and what it means to honor a commitment. We want to instill in them a work ethic that does not allow them to slow down when they see the finish line. We want to help them stay focused and see it through to the end.

 

Moving forward, seniors are expected to maintain an 85% or higher attendance rate for the remainder of the school year. Individuals that do not meet these expectations put their participation in the graduation ceremony in jeopardy. It is not our goal to exclude students from this privileged event and that is why we are reaching out to parents and guardians. We need every student here each day to make sure they gain the needed skills for life beyond High School.

 

Respectfully submitted,

 

Todd Whitaker

Principal
