Attend to Achieve
Thursday, August 23, 2012 4:35 PM

Attendance is a critical foundation for school success. Students need to attend school to achieve in school. In fact high school students who attend school 95% of the time are one-and-a-half times more likely to be on-track to graduate on time; when students attend school they are much more likely to achieve their dreams and enroll in college; the more involved students are in school, the more likely they are to enjoy school and want to attend school. Find out more about how you can support your student's attendance.

He asked everyone in  the room to close their eyes and try to see a vision for themselves. 
    He then answered a wide range of questions from the audience.  This reporter found that he had a remarkable knowledge about the Northside, commenting specifically on the many positive things going on.
    He said he wanted to teach everyone to do a proper handshake. He showed one student how to grip firmly a person's hand, look them in the eye, and then say your name.  He moved to the doorway and shook everyone's hand as they left.  Our mayor has a lot of energy.
