School News and Events

Last week students were assessed on both reading and math skills using the Istation program. All students should complete their Istation learning path per their January tier group to help develop their reading skills. This is done for homework weekly, but may be done in elective classes.


All students are learning the 12 Powerful Words to help them prepare for standardized test vocabulary. Here is a Quizlet link to help them study.
