Did you know that in NYC public schools, approximately one out of every five New York City school students missed one month or more of school last year? Wow! I had no idea they had such a chronic attendance problem. Listen to this creative solution that is sure to make a big difference!
Old Navy has partnered up with Mayor Bloomberg’s Task Force on Truancy and Chronic Absenteeism and has asked NYC Public School students to pledge to go to school every day. In fact, on November 4th, Old Navy rewarded shopping sprees to 300 students with the best and most improved attendance from the 25 schools participating in the Mayor’s Campaign to combat absenteeism with an Old Navy VIP Shopping Experience. These students were given $50 gift cards, along with a surprise winter coat and visit from Mets shortstop, Jose Reyes. Old Navy’s partnership with NYC will continue throughout the school year – with a surprise grand finale at year-end. The first six weeks of the school year have been identified as the most crucial weeks for establishing strong attendance yearlong. This Old Navy program ought to make any kid get to school!
I think it is really neat that Old Navy is partnering with this school district to help this serious problem! You have a chance to win a $50 Old Navy Gift Card right here and maybe you too can use it creatively to reward a child for improving their school performance or for having perfect performance already!
One lucky reader will win one Old Navy $50 Gift Card.
