Make-up Days

After attending seminary for 4 years, students are presented with a graduation certificate. If they do not attend at least 80% of the time during one of those years, they are not given a 4 year certificate, but are just given a certificate of completion for the number of years they attended 80% of the time. However, students can at any time before graduation, make up missed days. I have two students who have missed many days of seminary in past years. Today I explained to one of those students that she could pick a chapter out of the student manual from the year she missed, and read through it and do the activities. I would then give her credit for one day's attendance for each chapter that she did. (a chapter is only about a page or two long) She asked, "How many days do I need to make up?" I told her, "Well, you need 80% attendance, and you had 43% for that year". Her friend said, "Basically, do the whole book." ;)

That's what our kids had to do for makeup too. One chapter (lesson) for each day they missed. And that is the ONLY thing they could do for makeup.
