attendance badge
- Every day and on time is the goal!  Did you know that students who miss school in kindergarten and 1st grade mave have trouble reading by the end of third grade. Whether the absences are consecutive or not, excused or not, they add up quickly and can cause your child to fall behind their peers in school. You can learn more about the impact of attendance in elementary grades with the infographic* below by attendanceworks.org.

East End's Buddy Bench

buddy bench
Now this is awesome! Thanks to our talented art teachers, Mr. Davis (Denver/EE) and Mr. O'Connell (EE/Holmes), we have a Buddy Bench at East End! Brought to the elementary buildings by our District Autism Team, the purpose of the bench is to help students who may lack social skills and have a hard time in unstructured/social situations. 

The Peer Autism Team will be trained to be "ambassadors" and when they see someone on the buddy bench, they will go try to invite them into an activity. All 3 elementary buildings will have a buddy bench and will spend the first three days of school explaining the purpose and expectations. It's a great way to encourage kids to reach out to each other... whether a student is new to the school and hasn't made friends, is uncomfortable meeting new kids, shy about joining in the fun, or struggling with the unstructured/social setting on the playground. Here's to a better future for all our kids!
