Report Cards

Quarter 2 Report Cards will be distributed to you today from your student's home school. If you have any questions regarding report cards, please contact your child's school.

MAP Reports

Thank you for a successful Winter MAP administration this week! New MAP reports will be created and distributed next Friday, January 19th from your student's home school.

Preparing for Quarter 3

As we work through the transition of finalizing courses from the first semester and opening courses for the second semester, students may temporarily have both sets of courses showing up on their dashboard within Accelerate Education. Please have your student only work in the courses labeled "B" (example Science 4 B).

One Word for Kids

January is a great time to reflect on the past and set goals for the new year. Here is a fun academic activity you can complete with your child. Watch the video below, which is a reading of the book, One Word for Kids. After reading the book, have your student think of a word, write it on a blank piece of paper (decorate your word), and take a picture with the word. Email the photo to your child's Digital Learning Teacher. We will highlight students' "One Word" entries on future newsletters.
