Local Students Awarded Bikes for Perfect Attendance

Posted: Updated:

It's hard to believe but kids here are getting ready for their last day of school.

It may be hard for kids to go all 180 days and not miss a single day.

But it is possible, and several students at Fairview Elementary School were awarded for it Thursday.

Horace Mann Insurance gave away bikes to the students who had perfect attendance.

It's a way to make students excited to come to school.

"I was told a story that one kid was going to miss school because of an appointment and begged his mother to please make it after school so he could have a chance to win," said Mark Travelstead, of Hoarse Mann Insurance.

East Park, Watson, and Jayenne Elementary schools also participate in the program.
