Random Acts of Kindness Week

During the week of February 14-17, students and staff took part in the “Random Acts of Kindness Week.”  The sticky notes on the poster pictured here, represent random acts of kindness that OPS students performed for each other, staff and family.  Students were excited to come to the cafeteria, pick a sticky note off a poster and then complete their act.  Both the student who performed the act, and the person who received the act felt good about the experience.

attendance matters



  • Only 17% of chronically absent kindergarteners and first graders in California read proficiently by 3rd grade; Students who don't read proficiently by 3rd grade are 4 times more likely to drop out of school. 
  • State law, which requires children ages 6 to 18 to attend school, defines truants as those who are absent or tardy more than 30 minutes without a valid excuse three times in a school year. 
  • Studies indicate that chronically truant students are more likely to drop out of high school, end up jobless and turn to crime. 
  • Factoring in the costs of incarceration and lost economic productivity and tax revenues, dropouts cost California an estimated $46.4 billion per year. 
  • Even though a parent excuses an absence, it may not qualify as an excused absence by law. 
  • By sixth grade, chronic absence becomes an early warning sign that a student may drop out of high school. 
  • It takes three academic days to make up one day of missed school.
