Richmond Drive Tiger Time
November 18th, 2023
A Message from Mrs. Hyatt
November is slipping away quickly. This is a short week, however, it is also an important week. Progress Reports go home Monday, November 20 with our K-2 students. Progress Reports for our 3-5 students need to be reviewed on PowerSchool in your created Parent Portal. See information below.
Also, remember due to the upcoming holiday, there will be no school Wednesday, November 22 - Friday, November 24. Keep you students reading over the holiday!
Lost and Found - Coats and Hoodies - We have an abundance of coats and hoodies that are located in lost and found. Please have your students check to see if any of the items are theirs. All items not taken by Tuesday, November 21, will be donated.

With much appreciation,
Progress Reports Available Week
We are getting close to the midterm of Quarter 2.
Progress reports will be printed for K-2 students.
However, 3-5 student families will need to check online in Parent Portal for progress reports. We want all parents to check on their students grades before Thanksgiving Break. The official date for progress reports is Monday, November 20.
Go to Student and Parent Sign In (powerschool.com) and sign in with your parent id if you have one or you can log in using your student's username and password (same as what they use to log into their laptops). Attached are instructions of how to set up a Parent Portal if you do not have one.
Once you are in Parent Portal/Powerschool you will see grades from each subject for Q1 and Q2. When you click on the number grade, you will see the graded assessments. If you download the Powerschool app the district code will be DGPH. This view will look a little different with a dashboard to navigate the program.
If you need support, please reach out to your teacher or Ms. Davis at email@example.com and we will help in any way we can.
