Focus on - Every day counts at kruger


Kruger has high expectations for student success in learning.  Our staff works very hard to ensure that students can achieve to a high standard.  This means that students need to be at school every day to give them the best opportunity to succeed.  This year, we will continue to focus on having every student on time and at school every day.  Our weekly tracking of each student’s attendance, class awards and celebrations will support this focus.
