Mid-term Reports

As is the theme with 2020, the school year is also moving at a rapid pace. We are already halfway through our first quarter! Students should have brought home their midterm reports already (and remember, you can access grades at any time through PowerSchool), and students should be aware whether they are on pace, or behind for this quarter.

For all students who are behind in their work - DON'T GIVE UP NOW! We still have a few weeks left this quarter to start turning your grades around. Teachers and staff are working to get you caught up, but the rest is up to you! We are holding you accountable for missed work, especially on the remote days, as you have to continue to learn. We know this is exceptionally challenging way to go through your course work, but we have to all work together to be successful.

We also know this year isn't ideal. Remember - districts everywhere are facing the same types of challenges. One crucial fact remains the goes on. We are here and ready to continue the job of educating. We are looking for you, the students, to continue with your job of learning. Now that we have gotten settled into a routine, let's make the best of this situation because like it or not, life moves on. Don't get left behind because you gave up on your job of learning!
