Report Cards

Report cards were finished and ready to view on Wednesday of this week. If you haven't yet accessed your child's report card, please go over it with them soon. You will be able to see how they have grown since the last nine weeks as well as areas in which they need to work on.


As a reminder, their report card is located in the "Shared with Me" portion of their Google Drive. They should be able to show you where it is!

Oh, the Places We'll Go as a 1:1 Campus!

We've seen a lot of iPads lately that are running out of storage. Please help your child to delete unnecessary pictures. If there are pictures they need, please have your child upload them to their Google Drive and then delete them. Thank you!

Keep Pushing!

As we round into the 4th and final nine weeks, we want to keep the stamina and grit going. We hope you see the importance of encouraging your children to stay the course and continue to keep pushing themselves!
