Shayla Kirsch and Alli Geis were September attendance winners.  The girls were treated to lunch at a restaurant of their choice.  How do students get chosen?   Every week that a student is in school their name is put in the drawing.  So for the month of September a student could have had their name in the drawing 5 times.    Congratulations to Shayla and Alli.  Photo submitted by Rene’ Forsmann.
