Students share their views about why it’s important to go to school all day, every day as part of poster contest
As part of Kern County’s annual School Attendance Awareness Month, which was observed during the first month of the new school year, students in grades 4, 5 & 6 were invited to create posters to help promote good school attendance.
The idea was to allow students to become engaged in the process, while articulating through words and imagery their views about why going to school all day, every day is so important.
The winning poster design and artist in each grade level will be recognized with an enlarged display of their project inside the lobby at the Kern County Superintendent of Schools office. Additionally, winners received a family pack of tickets to this year’s Holiday Lights at CALM event. The artwork will be used to help promote next year’s School Attendance Awareness Month.
This year’s winners are:
“Attend School & Your Dreams Come True!”
6th Grade — Loudon Elementary
“No More Tardies!”
5th Grade — Stine Elementary
“Why I Go To School”
4th Grade — Frank West Elementary
