The Bearcat Bulletin

October 5, 2020

Message from the Principal

Hey, Bearcat Family,

The fifth week of school is upon us. By now, the first progress reports have gone out to families via Skyward. We want all students to be academically successful. If your student is struggling in a class, please reach out to the teacher via email or phone to make a plan to improve their grades before the six weeks ends. This issue of The Bearcat Bulletin will focus on celebrating our students who exhibit our GROWTH traits.

With gratitude,

Ms. Bradford
