Two Graves County elementary schools won their categories in a statewide competition on “High Attendance Day” Tuesday, Sept. 18. The Kentucky Directors of Pupil Personnel, the event’s sponsoring organizations, announced winners Oct. 16.
Fancy Farm had perfect attendance of all 207 students to win the small elementary school category.
Lowes’ attendance was 99.64 percent of its 278 students that day to win the large elementary school category. Both schools will receive awards and rewards for their efforts in coming weeks.
Fancy Farm is a second time winner. Another Graves County school, Cuba Elementary, also won the competition previously.
“We are proud of all our schools for their diligence in attendance every day,” said Graves County Assistant Superintendent/director of pupil personnel Jennifer Smith. “Of course, we’re particularly proud of Fancy Farm and Lowes for their tremendous effort this year! They deserve congratulations! The entire point of High Attendance Day is to bring attention to the importance of attendance. It’s the first step in learning.”
