Zeros and Standards Based Grading

Did you know that our teachers at Schmitt don't put zeros in their gradebooks? Do you know why? Watch this video to have an introduction into the "why" we don't believe in using a zero as a grade.

Outdoor Recess

Be sure to send your kiddos to school with cold weather gear and a winter coat! We will have outdoor recess most days, unless temperatures drop below 20 degrees.
