Waxahachie Autoplex to Give Car to Student with Perfect Attendance

One deserving student from Waxahachie ISD will have the opportunity to win a FREE Car this year courtesy of Waxahachie Autoplex.  Students will be striving all year long to earn tickets for perfect attendance so that they may have the opportunity to win a FREE CAR! 

Waxahachie Autoplex’s owner Wesley Spence has teamed up with Strive to Drive TX in an all-out effort to educate students and their parents on the importance of being in class, as attendance has a direct effect on academic performance. Research shows that consistent school attendance is directly linked to positive behavior, increased participation in extracurricular activities, higher grades and higher overall educational outcomes.

How does the Strive to Drive TX Program work?

  • Students may earn 1 ticket per month for perfect attendance
  • Students may earn 1 bonus ticket per semester for perfect attendance
  • Students may earn a maximum of 10 tickets for the year
  • The district will utilize state guidelines for reporting Average Daily Attendance to determine perfect attendance contest eligibility
 
Students in grades 9-12 at Waxahachie High School, Waxahachie Global High School, and Waxahachie High School of Choice are eligible for entry.
