Every Moment Matters: The Power of Good Attendance

Welcome to our Attendance Website! At Mustang North, we believe that every moment of learning is a step toward a brighter future, and we understand that consistent attendance is not just a routine but a crucial foundation for academic achievement and personal growth. Whether in the classroom or in life, showing up consistently shapes our success.

Why Attendance Matters:

  • Academic Achievement: Students who attend school regularly are more likely to excel in their studies, stay on track with assignments, and grasp critical concepts. Every lesson, every class, every moment counts.
  • Social Connections: Regular attendance helps students build and maintain friendships, fostering a sense of community and belonging. Every interaction shapes their school experience.
  • Future Success: Good attendance habits formed in school lead to better job prospects and a disciplined approach to life’s challenges. Every day of learning is a step toward a brighter future.

• Showing up every day is a skill that you are developing that will help you do well in class and with getting and keeping a job later on.

• School only gets harder when you skip a class. Sometimes it’s tempting to skip or stay home because you are tired or don’t understand what’s going on in class. But missing a day only makes that worse because you aren’t learning something that will help you understand a lesson later on.

• If you think missing a day here or there won’t matter, think again. By missing just one day every two weeks, you would be on track to miss two full weeks in a semester or nearly a month of school for the year!

• Did you know that a student who misses 10 days or more during a school year is less likely to graduate from high school and or ever enroll in college?

• Chronic absence can affect your ability to earn a living. Dropouts are less likely to succeed in a career. In fact, a high school graduate makes, on average, $1 million more than a dropout over a lifetime.

• If you’re having trouble getting to school— and have challenges such as transportation, bullies, etc.—tell someone, such as a teacher, guidance counselor or your family, maybe we can help.

Attendance Is Key


Research shows a strong correlation between student attendance and student achievement and, ultimately, graduation rates. In fact, many studies have pointed to student attendance as the best predictor of high school graduation rates.
