From early on in elementary school, Baler senior David Werolin III set a goal that he would never miss a day of school. As the end of his senior year approaches, he is on the doorstep of achieving that goal. This week, Werolin was recognized at the school's annual perfect attendance ceremony -- not only for having perfect attendance during his senior year, but also for not missing a single day of school all four years. What's more, his attendance streak dates back to kindergarten.
The school announced that 445 students achieved semester or yearlong perfect attendance for the 2014-15 school year, including 12 seniors who did not miss a day of school for all four years. To read the story on Werolin in BenitoLink, click here.
On May 11, the Board of Trustees approved the addition of fencing to three separate campus locations as seen in the attached PowerPoint. The rationale behind the fencing is that we would like to prevent unwanted behaviors on our campus at nights and on weekends. We will also use the fencing to lock down our campus in the case of any type of threat to our students. All gates will be left open during the passing periods as well as brunch and lunch so that students may travel from our different campuses unimpeded. The fencing will be back off the street so that we maintain the beauty of our main campus building, but at the same time create a safe place for our students and staff. Thank you for your time and understanding -- Assistant Principal Jeremy Dirks.
