As school begins each year students are usually filled with excitement and enthusiasm to meet new friends and learn new things.  Just the anticipation of a new class and seeing their old friends provides motivation to come to school during the first few weeks.  Regrettably, after a few weeks some students begin to feel that regular attendance to school is not important.  Sadly, but not usually intentionally, some parents also feel that missing a few days of school is not that important.
