The beginning of the year always holds such excitement and promise, and for us it is an annual rite of passage where we open our doors and share with you our hopes and dreams for the coming year. I speak for all Menifee County High School staff when I say, what a blessing and a privilege it is to serve as educators for our students and community.
You might have heard the saying, “80% of success is showing up.” While that might be a high estimate of the impact of student attendance, research does tell us that attendance in school is one critical factor for success. Researchers who have studied early warning factors, or factors that can help us to predict a student’s likelihood to graduate from high school, have noted the importance of looking at GPA, courses failed and attendance. Student attendance less than 80% of the time beginning in 6th grade can impact later outcomes, including graduation from high school. When students miss 10% of the instructional day (18 days in a 180-day school year), achievement and progress are negatively impacted.
The staff of Menifee County High School is committed to supporting students in day to day success. Partnering with parents is a critical indicator to student success. If you can volunteer or be a member of a committee, contact the front office. Please use the parent links on our website to find valuable information.
I wish you and your student all the best this school year. Contact me from 7:00am to 4:00pm, 606-768-8108 or email email@example.com
