The single most important part of your child’s education is regular attendance. Attendance matters, evidence shows that missing a substantial amount of school can be detrimental for students’ academic achievement. Attendance rate is linked with student success in short- and long-term educational outcomes. Each day our students miss out on school is associated with lower achievement in literacy and numeracy skills. I encourage our students, parents, and our school community to work together and communicate when your child is absent from school.
It is essential that our students’ parents speak with their child’s classroom teacher and find out what work your child needs to keep up. Develop an absence learning plan and ensure that your child adheres to it. When schoolwork involves parents, students learn more. Parents are a child’s first teachers and can instil values that encourage school learning. At AIC we aim to build strong alliances with parents and welcome their active participation in their child’s educational goals and the importance of setting high expectations for each child through stronger ties of communication.
I look forward to meeting you and supporting your child’s growth and educational journey with us.
