    Attendance Matters! 
    17% of Kelly students currently have chronic or severe attendance issues making them at risk to fall behind academically. Chronic late arrivals and early dismissal also have a negative impact on your child's education experience and impact the entire classroom community. The beginning and end of the school are vital times of the day where teachers set the tone for the day and wrap up the days events and solidify learning. Kelly has a Student Attendance Review Team that meets regularly to help students and families improve attendance. If you need assistance in improving your child's attendance, don't hesitate to reach out to one of our school counselors, Molly or Daina. 
    Fill out the to-date Volunteer Interest/Skills Form, so we can see more of you on campus!
    Interested in volunteering in your school and community? Please see fill out the linked survey so that we can help connect you with volunteer opportunities here at Kelly. 
    We are making an effort to consolidate the information we have on parent and community volunteers. If you have already filled out a form to be a volunteer at the school, we still please ask that you fill this out because it supersedes anything we've put out in the past. 
    If you prefer to fill this out on paper, you it should have made it into your child's backpack this Friday, and there are always more copies available at the SUN office.
