Welcome to Backman Elementary School

Welcome Students and Parents! We want to encourage you to have your children attend school every day for the next 3 months. Classes with perfect attendance for the month will be eligible to put student names in a drawing for a $25 gift card. Each class that has perfect attendance for the month will get an ice cream treat for the first month, a gift bag for the second month of perfect attendance, and a pizza party for for the third month of perfect attendance. Students will also earn extra carnival tickets for each month they have perfect attendance. The Grand Prize drawing for students having perfect attendance for the 3 months is a $50 gift card. These prizes are being funded by our wonderful PTA.

Testing begins soon, so please have children here so they can be prepared.
