Middle School Progress Reports
K-5 uses standard-based grading and those progress reports are completed at the end the first and second semesters. 6-8 report cards use letter grades, and the comments are completed at the end of the semester as well. If you have a middle school student, you can view their grades at any time. Please follow the directions below:
Log into PowerSchool.
On the start page, click the Grades and Attendance from the left navigation menu. The Grades and Attendance page appears.
Click the Grades and Attendance tab.
Grades and Attendance are viewable. Clicking on a grade will display grade book information.
If you have one student, you will see the first name of your child on a blue tab on the left side under PowerSchool. If you have more than one student, you will see their first names in alphabetical order.
Please reach out to Heather with any questions!

Eagle Scout Project
Did you know that our entire playground and shelter in Ossian was made possible through Eagle Scouts from Ossian Troop 88? We have a scout who has raised money to build a handicap accessible gaga ball pit with treated lumber but would like to upgrade to a structural composite board. If you are willing to help this scout upgrade, please send your donation to St. Teresa of Calcutta School and put in the memo eagle scout project. Additional funds above and beyond this upgrade will go towards rubber matting. Thank you so much for your consideration.
