For years, the Perfectly Punctual Campaign has supported positive attendance habits from the outset of schooling. It uses punctuality, the good news about attendance, as the impetus for positive reinforcement and playfulness to change hearts, minds and routines. This two-generation program engages children daily in monitoring their own attendance, honors parents monthly for getting their children to school on time and translates attendance data into management information for school administrators.
In partnership with Attendance Works, LearnLead is providing its popular Perfectly Punctual attendance scorecard and Punctual Pete buttons for download at no cost.
Keeping Score on Student Attendance
The scorecard is designed to be a family engagement tool. Children fill in their scorecard daily. At the end of the week, teachers send the scorecard home to remind parents of the importance that preschool or school places on consistent, on-time attendance.
Every morning, children circle the star for on-time arrival OR circle the running clock for late arrival. If a student is absent, they circle the sad face the next day they are back in school.
What’s a campaign without a button?
Perfectly Punctual’s trademark Punctual Pete is an integral part of the campaign. He can be featured on buttons and stickers to share the motto: On Time / On Target for Success.
