In an effort to improve student attendance, Sam Fordyce Elementary students have been receiving short term, as well as long term incentives. Getting weekly incentives has helped students get motivated because of the immediate gratification they receive for their efforts to come to school every day. Every six weeks students have also been enjoying an incentive, they’ve had a dance, an electronics day and have been entered into a drawing for a chance to win bicycles, board games, stuffed animals, etc. Long term incentives have also been planned for these students. Students who had perfect attendance the 2nd and 3rd Six Weeks were taken on a field trip to the movies and the park. Close to 220 students attended the fieldtrip on Friday, January 13, 2017. Students went to Movies 6 where they watched the movie Trolls; then they went to the park where they had lunch and played in the park.
