Dear Parents,

Friday completes the first nine-week grading period. Grades will be final in the gradebook by midnight on Monday, October 14. We will be sending home student report cards toward the end of the next week. We will also upload report cards in the parent portal in Skyward. Please check your child's grades. With two grading periods this semester, it is important that students stay on top of nine-week grades as the two grading periods will be averaged together to determine the semester grade.


***Please encourage your child to attend morning tutorials at 7:55am each morning if they are currently failing a class. Check those grades online so you are aware of their current grade. Last week in the S'More, there was a video to watch to show you how to check these grades. I have also told each student they are to check grades daily. Please HELP!
