Progress Reports and communication
As for progress reports, I knew this was a little ambitious for me to do each nine weeks. So, I will only send home progress reports tomorrow (Thursday 2/21) for this nine weeks. After tomorrow, I will only send them home if there are areas that your child needs to work on.
