WHY:             
The “Evening Among the Stars” honors students who represent the best attendance for their graduating class. In the last year of their school level, these students have had perfect attendance each school year.

Students who have demonstrated cumulative perfect attendance while continuously enrolled in BCPS in one of each of the three school levels are eligible for the Perfect Attendance award – elementary (grades kindergarten through five), middle (grades six through eight), and high (grades nine through 12).

This school year, there are 311 students with Perfect Attendance, including:

 

  • Eight seniors with the best attendance since their first day of kindergarten, also recognized as “Best in Class”
  • 21 elementary school students with perfect attendance (grades kindergarten – fifth)
  • 224 middle school students with perfect attendance (grades six – eight)
  • 66 high school students with perfect attendance (grades nine – 12)

 

As BCPS aims to decrease chronic absenteeism, the District remains committed to an attendance campaign that encourages all students to have good or improved attendance. 

Perfect Attendance grade-level award recipients will receive medals and gift bags with donations from community partners. The District Attendance Committee thanks several community partners including, the Florida Panthers, Miami Marlins, Museum of Discovery and Science, Rapids Water Park, and Xtreme Action Park. 

MEDIA ARE INVITED TO COVER THIS EVENT.
