Parents & Guardians:

It’s hard to believe that we are coming up on the middle of Term #1 already; it seems like school just started. For your planning purposes, the Parent Portal will be opened up on Friday, October 4th for mid-term grades. This doesn’t mean you can’t access the Parent Portal now to follow your child’s progress, it just means that all grades will be entered and current on October 4th.

On a side note, especially if you look at your child’s grades often, teachers need time to grade and upload assessments. Please understand that there may be some time between assessment day and posting of the grades. If you have any questions about the status of your child’s progress, you can always contact his/her teacher or Team Leader directly.

We have created a nice pace for our students and staff. Looking forward to continuing with all of the great things we do everyday.
