Posted by Paul Mansingh on 10/13/2019
How quickly the weeks come and go, here we are with two weeks till the end of the 1st grading period. What does that mean? In titan terms, it is our 1st academic paycheck. Academic paychecks, 1st quarter report cards, demonstrate the level of academic excellence each student has achieved. In the next two weeks, make sure you log on to PowerSchool and check your child’s grades, attendance and tardies.
Thanks for having an academic conversation with your child to make sure they are earning the high marks that will propel them into the college and or career of their choice. Academic habits are built with continuous repetition of hard work, dedication, and preparedness.
