Woodmont K-8 recently celebrated an exciting achievement. In October, 121 scholars had perfect attendance! These scholars were in class, on time, every day, ready to learn. 

Each Friday, the class with the highest attendance for the week gets their class name recognized in their Monday morning announcements and gets their name on the school bulletin board.

Additionally, one scholar from each grade level with perfect attendance for the week gets a shout out during morning announcements, a picture taken to be shared on their Facebook page and on their school bulletin board and receives a PAW to be entered into the daily PAW drawing to win prizes.
