Socorro Independent School District students have the opportunity to win a special award for their perfect attendance and their commitment to Make it Count.
The district will host two fun events, Magical Day and Xtreme Day, to reward students who attend school every day from February 5 through April 20.
Team SISD encourages all students to attend school every day to maximize every minute of learning time in the classroom. The district has the highest attendance record in the region with a 96.3 percent rate for the 2016-2017 school year, according to the Texas Academic Performance Report.
Via a news release, SISD officials said they offer “various incentives each year to reward students and parents for their commitment to Make it Count and have perfect attendance. Magical Day and Xtreme Day are two fun events offered this year to continue motivating students to be in school every day.”
Magical Day will allow students in Pre-K through fifth-grade to see a show featuring their favorite heroes and princesses on May 18 at the Student Activities Complex, 1300 Joe Battle Boulevard.
Students will have the opportunity to sing along, dance and take pictures with characters such as Coco, Beast and Moana. Games, coloring and face-painting activities also will be available one hour before the magical performances. Campuses will be designated a time to attend the event at 5:30 or 8:30 p.m. A parent/guardian must attend with their child.
Xtreme Day will reward students in sixth through eighth-grade with fun attractions from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. May 11 at the SAC. Student activities will include toxic meltdown, a multi-player game where participants jump and duck over obstacles to see who can last the longest, a rock climbing slide and more.
Parents may accompany their child to Xtreme Day, but only students will be allowed on the field.
Both events are free for students with perfect attendance and a parent or legal guardian. Parents also will be responsible for transportation to and from the events.
