Masters, we do our best to ensure students’ academic success. Attendance is a very important factor in that
academic success. We do understand that
illness happens forcing some absences.
If students do not attend classes regularly, have frequent late
arrivals, or early pickups, their chances for success in school is
significantly reduced. It is vital for
your child to come to school each day and arrive on time. Even though your child may be able to
complete the missed assignments, it is extremely difficult to make up the lost
direct teacher-student interaction.
Tardies and early pick-ups also result in a significant amount of lost
instructional time. The habits that
students form will shape their future.
We are very concerned about the effect absences and tardies may be
having on your child’s progress in school.
All parents and students
who gave staff, principal, and teachers a gift for Christmas! So wonderful to have generous
students and parents think
of us!!! You are the greatest!!!
Parents thank you so much for your continued support at home. Each week we have
an increased number of Masters Students that are on the Math Honor Roll. Ask
your student if their name has been called over the intercom for being on the
Math Honor Roll.
continue to support your student in the
home environment by having them read at least 20 minutes each night, continue
to practice their basic math facts or they can practice their math skills on
IXL. Take Note of our January Students of the Month! Way to go Masters
feel free to e-mail your comments, suggestions, or questions to
