First Semester Grades

First semester grades have been stored. If you haven't yet, please check out your (your child's) first semester grades in PowerSchool. This step is vital to verify you (your child) doesn't have any NCA grades and to assure the grade isn't lower than you'd like. Remember, all our yearlong Personalized-Mastery Learning courses (any course in Summit) the 2nd semester year-end grade can become a replacement grade for first semester if the year-end grade is higher (i.e. 1st semester is a C grade and 2nd semester is an A grade - we retroactively replace the 1st semester with an A grade). The time is now in 2nd semester to improve any 1st semester grade. And if there is an NCA in any class from 1st semester those NCA grades need to be resolved as soon as possible for them to change to the grade earned - please connect with our attendance office to confirm opportunities to work time for time in any course with more than 5 absences (an NCA grade).


Seniors, grab your parent(s), join us for dinner and stay to be a part of the conversation as we plan for the Class of 2022 Graduation. Please plan to attend this important meeting for SENIORS & SENOIR PARENTS!
