Keep Learning on Winter Break with Compass Learning and the Library

Did you know that students that work on Compass Learning for 40 minutes or more per week are more likely to score higher on End-of-Year tests?! Compass Learning is available from home and directions can be found here: English Spanish.

Compass Learning uses students' MAP scores to create individualized instruction and practice exercises in Reading and Math. We recommend students working for about 20 minutes per session.

North Carolina School Report Card

The 2015-2016 North Carolina School Reports were released earlier this year and we shared with you with the exciting news that our school Exceeded Growth! You can read more about it in Principal Neill's letter. A copy of the NC School Report was distributed to students Dec. 21. You can also view the report here.
