    Attendance Bulletin Boards

    Bulletin Boards can be used to display and promote attendance data, combining graphs, goals, and strategies for coming to school on time. Recognizing students for high attendance - and creating healthy competition between classrooms - can inspire an entire schoolhouse.

    Looking to help younger students understand the idea of attendance? In this K-2 wing, homerooms earned a part of a snowman for each day their students were present and on-time. The board was located on the way to the cafeteria, and teachers would frequently stop and ask their class to asses who was in the lead, in last place, etc. (The penguins were for homerooms that completed their snowmen early!)

    On this "Attendance VIPs" board, each homeroom's attendance is displayed, week by week, with different color stars marking high achievement. The teacher with the highest homeroom attendance is noted in the bottom left corner, as "Coach of the Week." In addition, the "Best Plays" list explains the purpose of the display in both English and Spanish - a must for our bilingual students and families.

    Not only does this display highlight this school's Attendance goal, it also helps to break down the reasons behind certain peaks or valleys - weeks with higher or lower attendance. The note reads "Blown away by the hurricane," a reference to October 2012's hurricane Sandy that disrupted Boston students and families for several days.
