Agenda/Monday Folders

 

       Students will write their assignments in their agenda.  Also, I ask that parents/guardians sign the agenda each day.

    Monday Folders will be sent home each Monday. The folder will contain assignments completed during the course of the week. Parents are asked to review the assignments with the student, sign the Monday Folder, and return the folder to school the following day. 


 

Power School Parent

PowerSchool’s Parent Portal gives parents and guardians information including attendance, grades, and other school information. The PowerSchool Parent Portal is a valuable tool, helping you stay informed of your student’s academic progress and attendance.
