It's a Journey

Hello Families! More than ever we as educators are seeing the impact of virtual learning on families and scholars. Each day we are seeing areas where we need to make adjustments. What does it look like to teach scholars accountability but also be mindful of how difficult it is to focus and learn in the virtual world. Friday, the staff discussed ways to support your scholars more, both socially and academically. Interims aren't just guidelines for you as parents but also for us as a staff to see ways we can improve. Thank you for your patience with us as we make changes that will lead to greater success for your scholar, and as always, thank you for being a part of our team!


Please read the following:

Interims! Interims are available to view through ProgressBook. Attached are directions in order to access your scholars grades. Also, pease remember that you can currently see how your scholar is doing in their Google Classrooms for each class. Once in their class click on "View Assignments" and you can see what has or has not been submitted as well as their grades.
