Skyward Gradebook

It is important that parents and students are staying up to date with the Skyward gradebook. Teachers are constantly updating their grades and it is important that students see their teacher's feedback to ensure they are staying on pace in class. With remote and hybrid learning it is more difficult than ever to stay organized with assignments and due dates. By visiting the gradebook weekly, it will go a long way in helping students stay on the right track.
