School-wide Info

MAP Scores

MAP Score Reports should have gone home today via your student's homeroom teacher. Be sure to take a look!

Braves Bucks

Here's an idea to get your students talking--- ask them about Braves Bucks! Let them tell you how many they have acquired this week. They can also tell you what they plan to "purchase" with their bucks.

Contact Mrs. Rickard

Because I teach 5 classes during the school day, my availability to return phone calls during the day is very limited. The best way to contact me is by email, and I will do my best to get back to you by the end of the school day.
