Report Cards

Report cards for Trimester 1 were sent home today via email. If you did not receive your child's report card, please contact the office.

Fall MAP Reports

Earlier this year, many of our students were administered the MAP assessment in the areas of math and reading. We traditionally send these results with report cards. This year, MAP reports will be available for families to pick up in the main office. We will look for ways to send these electronically in the future.

Return to Learn- Change Request

We know there are families that would like to change their child's current learning environment (Remote or In-Person). Please complete the survey below so we can begin planning for any changes that need to be made.

ONLY complete this survey IF you wish to have your child's environment CHANGED. Complete the survey for EACH child you have. Surveys are due by Friday, December 4th.

Please note change requests may involve the child moving/switching teachers.

Specials Office Hours

Starting with the 2nd trimester, Specials Office Hours are going to move to 1:00pm - 1:30pm. You can still find the links in SeeSaw and Schoology in your Specials classes. Please join us if you need help with your Specials lessons!
