Social Worker News
School Social Workers provide individual, group, and classroom support for students and
consultation to parents. My goal is to help reduce/remove any barriers that are in the way of your
child being successful in the classroom. If you have questions or concerns about something your
family or child is going through, please call me on my direct line at 952-431-8795. You can also leave
me a voicemail at 651-683-6969 x18795 or email me at [email protected] I am at
school Monday – Friday from 8:00 to 4:00. Feel free to stop by anytime!
September is National Attendance Awareness Month. This is a nationwide event that
recognizes the connection between school attendance and academic achievement. Here at Cedar
Park, we strongly believe that attendance is the key to success. We believe that setting good
attendance habits in elementary school will create good attendance all the way through college.
We know that some absences are unavoidable such as illness, family emergencies, or doctor
appointments. We do ask that you try to schedule appointments before or after the school day to
avoid being absent. See the flyer on the next page for some great strategies!

Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit
in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Good attendance
will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.
