Synergyse - a formative assessment tool

Super Quiz is an add-onn for Google Sheets that provides you with a wealth of data as well as a mode for providing valuable feedback to the student. Please see Cheryl Turner for assistance if you are interested in trying this tool!


As we wrap up the 2nd nine weeks, we need to begin having conversations with parents about their student's academic concerns. This is a great time to provide additional support and create awareness of our concerns. Please complete the form.
