OAKHURST — Oakhurst Elementary School recently honored 34 students who earned perfect attendance for the 2016-2017 school year.
The honor is earned by getting to school every single day and being on time. Research strongly supports a strong connection between excellent attendance and academic success.
As the end of the year approached, school principal Kathleen Murphy approached each child individually to explain the rewards he or she could choose from.
This year, students had a choice between a new bicycle and a morning shopping spree at the OES Scholastic Book Fair. After much contemplation, 23 students chose to have a shopping spree and 11 students chose to receive a new bicycle.
Congratulations to the following students who were honored at the recent Flag Salute Program at OES on Wednesday, June 7, 2017:
