All Day, Every Day! Students need to be in school all day, every school day to reach their highest potential. Communities In Schools of Thomasville is working directly inside Thomasville City Schools at every grade level to reduce truancy and break down barriers that prevent students from being present at school.
Last year, Qwa'mere missed at least one day a month which put him on our case-management list. He told his Student Support Specialist, "I don't like school." She has been working with him weekly this year, asking him to set goals and giving him strategies to be successful in school. Qwa’mere had Perfect Attendance first quarter – zero absences, zero tardies – which earned him a ticket to the final home football game of the year! And even better, he now likes school and has found his own motivation to be present in his classes.
Help us make a difference for more children this year. Consider a year-end gift of $5, $25, $100 or more to support our Attendance Initiatives like incentives for Perfect Attendance. We want students to be in school all day, every day. Join our “community of support” to help kids stay in school and achieve in life.
