January Monthly Spotlight: Altruria Elementary School!

We took a short hiatus from the monthly spotlight in December for the holidays, but we’re happy to be back sharing stories of great work happening in our region. Thank you, Altruria Elementary, for sharing your story with us! We are excited about the work you are doing.

Altruria Elementary's RTI2-Behavior Team wanted to improve attendance by rewarding students who attend school all day every day. The team created a quarterly HERO (Here - Every day - Ready - On time) Party to celebrate these students. The first HERO party was a Glow Dance Party. Students who qualified with perfect attendance for the first quarter and E's or G's in conduct got to dance to some of their favorite tunes in a dark gym with black lights and glow sticks for each student. Each HERO party will have a different theme and will take place after each quarter, so students who did not qualify to attend the first party will have 3 more chances to attend. The students and staff had a great time!
