I hope you received your student's Term 2 Report Card and NWEA report. The NWEA assessment is one we take three times per year to track students' growth. Please reach out to our main office if you are missing either of these items so we can be sure to get you additional copies. Be sure to talk with your student about their NWEA goals - many have had conferences with their teachers to set goals and strategies for the remainder of this year! We are documenting some really exciting growth in our students' scores, and we know it will continue!
Enjoy your weekend!
PS: A huge Puma thank you to Scott Swan from WTHR - Channel 13 for speaking at today’s Puma Excellence Breakfast honoring our students who made honor roll for the first semester. It was an inspiring message about living CORE in all areas of our life: Civility, Order, Respect, And Excellence.
