Every Day Matters
Students with regular school attendance are more likely to succeed. Every day matters for every child. Everyone can help make this happen – schools, families and community members.
Attendance matters for students at all grade levels. Students who attend school regularly are more likely to read at grade level, and to build a strong foundation as they move from preschool and kindergarten to high school.
On the other hand, students who are chronically absent are at risk of falling behind. “Chronically absent” means a student is missing 10% of the school year. It doesn’t matter whether the absences are excused or unexcused. Each day represents lost time.
What does 10% look like? If your school district uses a five-day week, 18 days is considered chronically absent.
Did You Know?
Children who are not reading at grade level by the end of third grade are 18% less likely to graduate.*
Students are considered at risk when they are chronically absent – that’s 10% of the school year.
1 in 6 Oregon children is chronically absent.*
Home of the Mustangs
Drew Frank has been the principal at Tom McCall Since September 2011. Prior to coming to McCall, Mr. Frank worked as the Students Services Director at Buckingham Elementary. This position is a kin to an assistant principal. Before beginning his administrative career, Mr. Frank was a classroom teacher for 10 years in Bend.
Mr. Frank earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Pitzer College, in Southern California. It was there that he played basketball for the college as well as solidified his desire to be part of the educational system of our country. Having grown up as the son of two educators, you could say, “teaching is in his blood.” If you ask Mr. Frank if he is a Duck or a Beaver; he’ll proudly say the Beavs!
Mr. Frank has an incredible wife who is a nurse in the Bend School District and two kids, both in high school. He loves to spend time with his family in the great outdoors. They love to camp, swim, play tennis and be active together. Mr. Frank is proud to be the principal of our school and he loves working with the staff, students, and families to make McCall the best it can be.

Tom McCall Elementary School’s Parent Teacher Connection (PTC) strives to support the excellent teachers and staff and foster the educational development of students.
Our annual fundraiser, the Tom McCall Mustang Fun Run, allows students the opportunity to get outside and get moving while raising funds to support the school. We host several family-oriented events throughout the school year, as well.
These efforts allow the Tom McCall PTC to assist educators in purchasing materials and equipment that may otherwise be unattainable throughout the school.

Redmond Battle of the Books (RBOB) is a district-level elementary school reading competition for 3rd, 4th and 5th-grade students. Students read 3 books from the booklist below to qualify to participate in a team. Teams are formed in early December to allow time for reading books that may not have been read yet by team members. In January and February, teams meet weekly to battle each other by answering questions from books on the list. The top two teams from Tom McCall will battle in a school championship and both teams will advance to the District RBOB Tournament in March where they will compete with the top teams from other Redmond elementary schools.
In response to growing school meal account delinquent debt and its effect on education funds, Redmond School District will begin sending out past-due debt notices that include a firm payment due date in an effort to collect past due debts. This action is being taken in order to protect the high quality of education in Redmond schools. If the meal account debt is not paid by the due date, those funds must come from education dollars in order to protect the solvency of our food service program.
