Progress Reports

If you check your student’s progress report on Skyward you might notice some less than stellar grades. We are only 3 weeks into the school year so there is plenty of time to bring those grades up. Many students are missing assignments so this hurts their average. If they can get those turned in, grades will go up. As soon as they give them to me, I will adjust grades.

I want to get the students prepared and help them to understand the importance of responsibility and turning things on time.
