Progress Reports will be released to the Parent Portal on Wednesday. This is a short grading cycle, so it is even more important than usual to be checking your child's grades in the portal and reaching out to the teachers with questions. The last day to turn in any missing assignments from the 3rd cycle is Friday, December 16th.
As a reminder, the winter performances are graded events. Performance is required to meet the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) in Dance, Music, and Theatre. It is highly important students are present for all school day rehearsals, as well as the evening show. The TeSA Activity Calendar shows all of our events for the year. Thank you for not scheduling non-urgent doctor's appointments on concert days!
Artistically & Academically Yours,
Betsy Compton, M.A., M.A.T., M.Ed.
