Every Moment Matters: Ensuring Success Through Consistent Attendance
Welcome to the Mustang Central Middle School Attendance Website, where we believe that every moment matters. At Mustang Central, we know that regular attendance is more than just a habit—it's a fundamental part of academic success and personal growth. Every day spent in the classroom is a step toward a brighter future.

Why Attendance Matters:

  • Academic Success: Students who attend school regularly are more likely to achieve higher grades, stay current with their studies, and master important concepts. Every class, every lesson, every moment contributes to their learning.
  • Social Growth: Consistent attendance helps students develop and maintain friendships, creating a sense of community and belonging. Every day at school is an opportunity to connect and grow socially.
  • Future Preparation: Building good attendance habits now lays the groundwork for future responsibilities and opportunities. Each school day is a valuable investment in their future success.

Explore Our Resources:

This website is dedicated to demonstrating the vital role that attendance plays in both current school performance and future opportunities. Encouraging regular attendance maximizes learning potential and helps students build a strong foundation for the future. Explore the resources and information we've gathered here to discover the impact of being present, engaged, and ready to seize every opportunity.

How Parents Can Help:

  • Set Clear Priorities: Emphasize the importance of daily school attendance.
  • Establish Consistent Routines: Develop regular morning and evening routines to ensure students are prepared for school each day.
  • Stay Updated: Keep track of school events, holidays, and important dates to avoid unnecessary absences.
  • Schedule Absences: Use the MPS Attendance Calendar to plan absences in line with days off school to minimize the impact of appointments, vacations, etc., on attendance.

• Showing up every day is a skill that you are developing that will help you do well in class and with getting and keeping a job later on.

• School only gets harder when you skip a class. Sometimes it’s tempting to skip or stay home because you are tired or don’t understand what’s going on in class. But missing a day only makes that worse because you aren’t learning something that will help you understand a lesson later on.

• If you think missing a day here or there won’t matter, think again. By missing just one day every two weeks, you would be on track to miss two full weeks in a semester or nearly a month of school for the year!

• Did you know that a student who misses 10 days or more during a school year is less likely to graduate from high school and or ever enroll in college?

• Chronic absence can affect your ability to earn a living. Dropouts are less likely to succeed in a career. In fact, a high school graduate makes, on average, $1 million more than a dropout over a lifetime.

• If you’re having trouble getting to school— and have challenges such as transportation, bullies, etc.—tell someone, such as a teacher, guidance counselor or your family, maybe we can help.

Attendance Is Key


Research shows a strong correlation between student attendance and student achievement and, ultimately, graduation rates. In fact, many studies have pointed to student attendance as the best predictor of high school graduation rates.
