This year‘s theme was superheros, and the celebration included a photo booth, music, cake, and candy bar. Food and other treats were donated by community sponsors Raising Cane’s, McDonald’s, and Communities in Schools. Students received 250 food coupons and certificates from Burger King, Shipley Donuts, Jack in the Box, Wendy’s, and Raising Cane’s. Target donated gift cards, as well as five volunteers to help set up and decorate. Additional major sponsors were Walmart, Sam’s Club, Rotary Club of Sharpstown, and Lee Principal Jonathan Trinh. More than 200 prizes including gift cards, electronic devices, televisions, and PlayStations were raffled off.

“The attendance celebration helps increase our attendance and keeps students excited about coming to school,” said Principal Trinh. Lee’s attendance rate rose this year to 96.3 percent.

The event was hosted by at-risk administrator Kenya Washington, with assistance from Herlinda Pena and Lee’s Apollo Fellows.
