  • Meister to focus on Attendance for the 2016-17 School Year


    For the first time ever, Meister’s attendance rate has dipped below the state average to 95.5% - the state average is 95.8%.  This may not seem like a huge deal, but in reality, a few tenths of a percentage point make all the difference and represent MANY days of student absence.    

    Recently, Meister school banded together to re-vamp our school-based goals . . . in the process of examining the data, it was discovered that specific actions needed to be taken to help increase our attendance rate.        

    As a school (and as a reflection of our community), we are expected to have an attendance rate no lower than the state average.  In reality, attendance matters.  The literal translation of all this . . . Your children need to be in school unless they are too sick to attend, and it is your job as a good parent to see that this is taken care of.

    I personally would like to thank every family whose children have perfect or near-perfect attendance.  In all reality, the overwhelming majority of our children have fine attendance, and this reminder is not meant to upset those households that strive for good attendance.  It is, however, meant to bring attention to a problem that can easily - and rightfully so - be solved in the home.

    All of our efforts will not change our poor attendance rate unless we get support from each and every parent in the Meister school community.  Please see to it that your child is in school every day possible and we will continue to see to it that we give him/her the best education that we possibly can.

    If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to call over to Meister.

    This Year's Theme 

    "Be An Everyday Hero"

    Each year a new theme is carefully selected. The theme works hand-in-hand with our Character Ed. focus which is the backbone of our school.  Our daily use of lifeskills and lifelong guidelines are the basis of this program. We celebrate these lifeskills every other Monday at what we call our P.R.I.D.E. Day. This stands for Personal Responsibility In Daily Effort. Making the right decision and doing the right thing is not always easy but these celebrations are a reminder that it is up to each child to try their personal best.
