Progress reports are enclosed for students in kindergarten through eighth grades.  The students are half-way through the first quarter, which is nine weeks.  Some students are working very hard; some could be doing better.  This is the time for students, parents, and teachers to work together….please call the office to make an appointment.



As teachers move forward with using additional technology, it is beneficial for the school to know how the school and home can work together.  Please complete the survey and return to school by September 8th.  Thanks!
