Hopefully you are ready for a nice long 4 days weekend! Next week is the start of a new month so students will be taking home new Behavior Calendars and Reading Logs. Grades for Progress Reports for Quarter 1 will close at midnight on September 8th. I conference with students every day to let them know if they have holes in the grade book. Parents/Guardians have the ability to look at grades online through ParentVue, and so do the students. Please don’t wait until Sept 7th to make up an assignment. We have 6 post it’s on our AR Raffle Board for students with 100% on an AR test. That means there are 94 spots left! 🙂
