Last school year was super but RISE is proud to to see parents not only enrolling their youth in school on time but making sure that they are re-enrolled in the Goal Card program. Beginning school on time is important because teachers begin instruction on day one and RISE strongly believes that each day lost impacts on the students future academic achievement.
That's why RISE staff was available at all of the schools on registration day and the few students who did not show up for registration were contacted by Goal Card staff to find out if there were problems.
For the past 9 years RISE Goal Card students have out-performed their peers and based on registration and the first "Lunch and Learn" series, that began the last week in August, this year will be no different. The problem faced now is having more students wanting to enroll in the program and not enough money to add new youth.
Please remember that your support will allow more students to participate in this incentive program that encourages students to do their very best school work, attend school every day possible and maintain good conduct grades.
