Perfect Attendance

Kudos to this girl!

Cal Ripken, Iron Man of the Baltimore Orioles, played in 2,632 consecutive baseball games.

Stefanie Zaner, Iron Kid of Darnestown, is closing in on her 2,340th straight day of public school...

But hers is a rare accomplishment. Not once in 13 years was Stefanie marked absent: not for a cold, a family vacation, a college visit or a senior skip day.

I teach in a small, rural system in Georgia, and we usually have 1 senior every year that has accomplished this feat. Three or four years ago, I taught a young man who missed one day his junior year--he went to a relative's wedding in Pennsylvania and they got snowed in. Only day he missed in 13 years--and he didn't even want to go to the wedding!

Arg! These are the kids who bring their germs to school and make mine sick!! Can't they just honour people with 95% or greater attendance rates?
