Student Survey Results (Fall, 2016)

Every fall our third, fourth and fifth grade eagles take a student survey helping us to gather feedback from our primary customers.... our students! Students in the primary grades (Kindergarten through second grade) also provide feedback in a more informal setting during weekly class meetings. This data helps us when setting building goals and objectives.
