September is Attendance Awareness Month!
The Iroquois-Kankakee Regional Office of Education, along with schools in Kankakee and Iroquois counties are participating in the “Miss School…Miss OUT!” Campaign, which focuses on the importance of excellence in attendance for all students enrolled in school. Studies show students who attend school regularly turn out to be better citizens and employees.
During the month of September local schools and businesses have been displaying the “Miss School…Miss OUT!” message on their school signs and in their buildings. Some businesses also displayed red wooden schoolhouse signs to show of support in the campaign.
I-KAN staff had a fun time at the YFC Food Truck 5K & Block Party September 17 at Perry Farm. Kids of all ages painted rocks and took their rocks home in their very own I-KAN Great Attendance Rocks bag.
