The Led Zeppelin Lesson (A Holiday Homily)
Students with regular attendance are more likely to read well by third grade and score higher on tests. They also tend to be more engaged in school and feel better about themselves. Put your child on the path to success with these attendance strategies.
Does your child enjoy photography, drawing, painting, dancing, creative writing, composing music or creating videos? If so, we want to see their creativity shine! The theme for this year's National PTA Reflections Art competition is: What is Your Story? All students are encouraged to enter in any of six arts categories: visual arts, photography, literature, musical composition, dance choreography, and film production.
Detailed rules and entry forms can be found at http://www.wastatepta.org/p
