Did you know that missing just 10% of the school year in the early grades can leave many students struggling throughout elementary school? Or that by 6th grade, missing that much school is strongly linked to course failure and even eventually dropping out of high school?  That’s just 18 days — or two to three days per month. Every school day counts, and everyone can make a difference: educators, after school programs, mayors, businesses and parents.

Lamar County School District is extremely proud to join in forces with the American Heart Association to fight against heart disease and strokes, the number 1 and number 4 killers in America. Last year through the efforts of you all, our faculty, staff, and students, the Lamar County School District was the #1 public school district in the entire Southeast USA for fundraising and one of the top school district in the nation. Way to go LCSD!!! Please support your schools efforts again this year by being a part of this worthy cause. Every family has someone who is touched by heart disease and or strokes.
