We are half way through the 2015-2016 school year! This means students and teachers have half of the school year to continue what is working well with regard to learning and achievement. Our goal is to empower each student with quality teaching. Sometimes our students may need a little help this time of the year.
Please consider the following options:
Schedule a conference with your child's teacher.
Review progress reports and report cards.
Utilize Skyward Family Access to check weekly grades
Make sure your child completes homework. All students have homework Mon.-Thurs.
