Research has proven how important it is to
attend school every day.

So Pachappa is initiating a new attendance incentive.

For every day that the class has perfect attendance with no tardies, the class will be able to put up a “letter” in the classroom. Once all the letters are up to spell the word P A C H A P P A (8 days) everyone in the class gets to prize!
