Attendance does matter at EASD. Recently, Everett administrators and staff recognized 14 students for outstanding attendance thus far this school year. Two grand prize winners, Mackenzie Headley, 10, and Colton Burkholder, 7, were awarded $50 compliments of Renaissance and a bag of Bedford Candies' popcorn. Other winners, each receiving a bag of popcorn, were 6th graders Wyatt Hill and Logan Shaw; 7th graders Emily Sager and Calvin Iseminger; 8th graders Abby Walters and Annastasia Hauze; 9th graders Cameron Mellott and Gage Fessler; 10th graders Christian Wright and Jacob Marsh; and 11th grade Isaac Blackstone and Rebecca Barkman and 12th graders Monika Clark and Cody Eshleman. Students' names are entered into a drawing if they have less than 3 days of absence. Special congratulations to each of our winners and thanks to Renaissance and Bedford Candies for your assistance in promoting that attendance does make a difference.
