A student in my attendance club was having a really hard time one week. His teacher was out all week and they had a substitute teacher for a couple days that the class didn’t seem to get along with. When I went in to speak with him on the second day of having that substitute teacher, he told me about how he was having a bad couple of days and how he almost didn’t come to school. He said that he decided to come to school because he remembered what we talked about and how important it is to come to school. I told him I was proud of him and how brave he was to come to school despite having had a rough couple of days. He came everyday that week!Communities In Schools of Puyallup Site Coordinator
