7th and 8th Grade Updates

Quarter 1 Progress Reports

Progress Reports are published at the mid-point of each of the four academic quarters and are a snapshot of a student’s academic progress. Report Cards are the official report of the student’s grades and are published at the end of each quarter.

Progress Reports and Report Cards are made available via Aspen. Students and caregivers will get an email alert when they are available to view.

During Advisory next week, students will learn how to access and read their progress reports and review the steps to take if they would like to improve their performance.

Aspen Student & Parent Portal

Aspen is our student information system which allows students and caregivers to view information such as grades, attendance, and report cards. It is important to remember that teachers typically update grades weekly or bi-weekly. If you have a question about a particular grade or assignment, it is best to contact the teacher.

All middle school students have Aspen accounts and have participated in tutorials guiding them through the login process. Your student should now be able to view their grades in each class.

7th grade caregivers received an email from Aspen in late August with login information and instructions. This email would have gone to the email address listed for the first caregiver contact. Parents of 8th grade students can use account information from last year.
