    Student's perfect attendance results in new car

    CONSTANTINE, Mich. - Andria Baker has pretty much always been present. From the first day of kindergarten through her last day of high school, Baker somehow made it to school for every day of classes, despite colds and sports injuries. Why? If she kept it up, her father promised her a car.

    Baker kept up her end of the bargain, willing herself to go to school on those days when she felt under the weather. She notched her 13th year of uninterrupted classroom attendance with her final day at Constantine High School on Friday.

    At a party Sunday, her father, Tim, presented the young woman with the keys to a new, $17,000 Pontiac G6, complete with a "0 DAYS" personalized license plate..............

    Didn't someone on this board have a daughter who had perfect attendance?

    Yes, my daughter did...but no car for her.

    She might get a bike though.

    I would have stayed home more.
    Not missing a day for 13 years for a $16K car?

    I'm sure the poor school nurse must have just shook her head a little.
    Oh thanks for trying to get your kid to come to school sick so we can spread it around.
    Admirable still, but I guess I would have promised a car for a certain GPA and not on days attended.
