Tillicum Principal Jeff Miller

Good Evening Tillicum Families,

This is an important reminder that there will be no school December 24 through January 4 because of Winter Break. We will return to school on Monday, January 7th at our regular time. At this time of the year, many people will make New Year’s Resolutions in order to help make a positive change in their lives.

As of the end of the 1st trimester, we had 60% of our students that had attended school 95% of the time or more. We had approximately 130 students that had attended less than 95% of school for the trimester. A little over half of those students only missed between 90% and 94%. If all of those students just missed one or two fewer days, we would reach our goal of 95% attendance and more importantly, there would be more students learning in class.

Please remember that elementary school attendance is the biggest predictor of whether or not a child will graduate from high school. If your student is not one of those 95% students, please make a resolution to have better attendance in 2019.

Thank you for taking the time to listen to this message and have wonderful Winter Break.


Buenas Noches Familias de Tillicum,

Les mandamos este recordatorio que no habrá escuela comenzando el 24 de diciembre hasta el 4 de enero debido a las vacaciones de invierno. Regresaremos a la escuela el lunes 7 de enero a nuestro horario regular. Este nuevo año, muchas personas harán resoluciones para hacer cambios positivos en sus vidas.

Al final del primer trimestre, 60% de los estudiantes de Tillicum asistieron a la escuela 95% del tiempo o mas. Tuvimos aproximadamente 130 estudiante que asistieron menos de 95% de los días escolares. Un poco mas de mitad de esos estudiantes tuvieron tazas de asistencias de 90% a 94%. Si esos estudiantes solo hubieran faltado uno o dos días menos, llegaríamos a nuestra meta de tener una taza de asistencia de 95% y mas importantemente, habrán mas estudiantes aprendiendo en los salones.

Por favor recuerde que la asistencia de la escuela elemental es el indicador mas grande para saber si su hijo se graduara de la high school. Si su hijo no viene a la escuela 95% del tiempo, por favor haga una resolución de tener mejor asistencia en el 2019. 

Gracias por tomar el tiempo de escuchar este mensaje y tenga buenas vacaciones de invierno.
