WATERVILLE — The Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce presented students who had perfect attendance at Albert S. Hall School through the 2016-2017 school year with awards. This year there were 26 students in the fourth and fifth grades that didn’t miss a day of school. The assembly was held June 16, according to a chamber news release.

To have perfect attendance each student must not be tardy, have no unexcused or excused absences, and not have early release. Of the 24 students, 10 were in the fourth grade including Corbin Anderson, Briana Burton, Kaileigh Clowry, Jada Inman, Benjamin Kitchin, CJ Moss, Jennie Parkhill, Meadow Poulin, Allexandriea Small and Zoie Small.

The 14 fifth graders to receive awards were Jacob Burton, Alyssa Curry, Ethan Dudley, Gabriela Garcia-Pollis, Dawson Harrison, Ezra Haviland, Samantha Hebert, Ilana Lizzotte, Kirk Mullen, Tristan Parkhill, Gillian Poulin, Evelyn Quaranto, Grace Wylie and Madison Yakimchick. All were given gifts donated by local businesses, and a Kindle.

Six students, Alyssa Curry, Gabriela Garcia-Pollis, Kirk Mullen, Tristan Parkhill, Gillian Poulin and Madison Yakimchick, completed their second consecutive year with perfect attendance. Each of these students were given a week at summer camp at the Alfond Youth Center.

A special most improved award was given to Alan Libby for only missing two days of school this year compared to 40 days from last year. The two students that got near perfect attendance for either going in a few minutes late or leaving a few minutes early are Garrett Gendreau and Joslyn Retamozzo.

Additional substantial financial contributions to support this program were provided by Bangor Savings Bank, Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce and Waterville Rotary Club.
