Striving for perfect attendance in career school prepares you for the world of work
Upper Darby, PA. Located just outside of Philadelphia, the Upper Darby campus of the Harris School is in the business of preparing our students for the world of work! Students in our Medical Assistant training program and Dental Assistant training program are learning real-world job skills every day.
One of the most important components to succeeding in school and in the workplace is your attendance. Showing up every day—and showing up on time—is so critical! We can’t say it enough! You’ve got to be here to get the most out of your career training! Check out these benefits of attending class every day:
- You keep up with in-class learning and benefit from our instructors’ support
- You get hands-on practical skills training that you can’t do at home
- You learn from other students and the questions they may ask
- You get moral support from teachers and other students
- You get practice for showing up at work on time every day
We are proud of our Upper Darby students with great attendance records. To drive home the importance of attendance, we recently held some attendance boosting incentives. Students who attended classes around the Thanksgiving holiday—a time when students may be tempted to skip class—were able to participate in these fun events:
- Tickets to the famous “Twelve Layers of Prizes” raffle
- Raffle for SEPTA tokens
- Pizza party for the two classes with the highest attendance
- Free breakfast bars for the first 25 students to arrive in the morning
- Student Appreciation Day free lunch
- Recognition for students with perfect attendance and perfect GPAs
- Bring a friend to school day
These events were a great way to boost school spirit and attendance at the same time. Students and staff enjoyed the holiday atmosphere at the school, and especially enjoyed showing the school to their friends. And of course, the raffle winners were especially happy with their prizes!
