Picnic with the Principal
Corona Elementary School is celebrating Highest Attendance Percentages each month with a Picnic with the Principal! Classrooms with the highest overall attendance percentage for the month by grade level are rewarded with a classroom certificate and trophy to display in the room, but even better than that, they get to eat a picnic style lunch on the playground with music and streamers as well as special games planned just for them. Winning classrooms must have a minimum 98% monthly attendance percentage, however, most of the grade level winners have been well over that with percentages at or above 99% for the month.
Thanks to the support of Corona’s PTO, Corona’s first picnic was held last week with parents decorating lunch bags and cheering for students as they picnicked with the Principal, Mr. Flores, and their teacher. After a great lunch of milk, PBJ, carrots, and pineapple, students spent the rest of their lunch recess playing football with Mr. Flores or swinging their hips in a hula-hoop. Students were also able to have traditional picnic fun with potato sack races or throwing a Frisbee. At Corona, our goal is “Every Day, On Time; On Time, Every Day,” and with events like Picnic with the Principal we encourage all of our students to make attendance count!
