interim reports were sent home today for Gr. 1-4 and will be sent home tomorrow for grades 5-8.
As you heard at Back-to-School Night, we are in full roll out of our standards-based grading system. We want you to be regularly updated on your scholar’s grades through interim reports. Our first report card conference will be November 16th. You will receive two interim reports (September and October) to be updated on your scholar’s progress. Scholars with a grade lower than a 75% will receive notes regarding what skills need to be addressed in at-home learning. Interim reports for scholars in Grades 1-4 were sent home today and interim reports for scholars in Grades 5-8 will be sent home tomorrow. Please check your child's backpack tonight for his/her interim report!
Picture Day is coming soon! Picture Day envelopes were sent home with scholars last week. Even if you are not purchasing individual pictures, all scholars need to be in full uniform on their academy's picture day. All scholars will take class pictures.

If your child is eligible to dress down, he/she will receive a dress down ticket on Thursday. This month, invited scholars are allowed to dress down in the color GREEN!
Our goal this year is 95% daily attendance. The only excused absences are those listed below.
