We want to give a shout out to La Mesa Junior High and Golden Valley High School! During the first quarter of this year, both schools have increased their attendance by over 2%.
These school communities know when students feel connected to school, they have better attendance, grades, and test scores and are more satisfied with school. Students are also more likely to engage in healthy behaviors when they feel connected to school and are less likely to experience emotional problems. Great job students, staff, and parents!
