at La Fiesta



Did you know arriving to class on time dramatically improves student learning?

Our school-wide Reading Intervention Program, Walk-to-Read, begins first thing in the morning. It is very important students arrive on time in order to receive the full benefit of this 30 to 40-minute, small group, targeted reading instruction.

A study performed by the U.S. Department of Education found “the most crucial learning hours of a school day are the morning hours, because they are when students are most attentive.” In addition, students who arrive late to class decrease their classmates’ learning as well. The same study found “students who are tardy cause a distraction for the entire class when they arrive.”


Students need to attend class on time and for the entire day to receive the amount of teacher attention that leads to successful learning. Students who read poorly at the end of first grade almost never acquire average reading skills by the end of their time in elementary school. The importance of attendance cannot be understated; the more time students spend in class, the more they learn.
