COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) – Dimon Elementary student Sawyer Elliott continued his 7 year perfect attendance streak, from pre-k to fifth grade, and received a plaque and certificate for his achievements today at graduation.
The streak took determination and a little bit of luck. The only time he has been sick during his school career was 2 years ago during spring break. His parents, who are both teachers, say they are so very proud of him continuing a streak that neither of them could match.
Sawyer says, “It feel’s good, honestly, it’s a great streak. I get this cool plaque as well. Not only that, It’s amazing how I made it the full year despite the pandemic.”
He hopes he keeps the streak going till he graduates high-school.
