Two initiatives came together to launch a joint effort to get kids to school more often and on a regular basis. Landon Braden (CA Coordinator) and Stacey Jacobs (TAPP Family Advocate) worked together to create wristbands to give to kids and staff at Washington Elementary in Pendleton. The message was simple "Every Day Matters" "You+School=Success". The two initiatives had the simple, yet effective message translated to the Umatilla language (Tamalúut) too. The district, Chronic Absenteeism, TAPP, and Staff at Washington Elementary are making their children a priority.
