Reading, Writing & Making (sense)

Mr Reed's English Class & Highlight Lab- U School

4-1-1 November 17th - December 8, 2014

The U School will hold our first progress conference with parents and students December 3rd and 4th.


I look forward to sharing students' competency progress reports. During the conference students and parents will have the opportunity to view their competency tracker which will provide evidence of students making progress toward meeting or exceeding grade level standards. ( Students will also see any missing or incomplete performance tasks )


Here is what's been happening and and what's coming up.
