It starts as early as Kindergarten, the first step in the academic journey for millions of students. Kindergarten is where students learn how to go to school and how to succeed. The better they perform in kindergarten and the early grades, the more likely students will succeed in school as they get older.
In fact, research indicates that attendance in kindergarten is vital not only because of the social skills that children learn but also for the habit of being in school daily and on time.
In an effort to ensure that parents send their children to school, Compton Unified School District Superintendent Darin Brawley reminds parents that it’s important to get into the habit of going to school every day.
“Attendance issues tend to develop early on for families, occurring as early as kindergarten, and place children at a much higher risk for dropping out of school in the latter part of their educational journey.”
So parents, it’s time to motivate your children to be serious about their education from the very beginning and make sure that they are in class every day.
To do well in school, your child needs to go school!
