We are all in this together!

Progress Reports Coming Home Today

Believe it or not, we are a little more than halfway through 2nd quarter of school already! Today your child is receiving an envelope with midterm progress reports from their various MAST 7 teachers. There are also printouts indicating the results from the recent MAP testing that occurred for each student. Please take time to look over this information with your student and then sign and return the envelope to school on Friday. You may keep all of the printouts and reports contained in the envelope. Also, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions/concerns.
