Employee of the Month- August 2016

Congratulations to our employee of the month for August 2016 Letitia Lambert!!!

Progress Report Overview

Progress reports recently came out. We had a wide variety of grades. Some teachers have over 60% of their class failing. If 60% of your class is failing, that is a major problem. I expect you to communicate with the parents of those students to see what the issue is. I will be touching base with the specific teachers who fall in this category.
