Report Cards Will Be Sent Home Tomorrow (01/05/18)!

Parents, be sure to ask your child(ren) to show you their report cards tomorrow.  The report card is your copy, but please sign the manila envelope next to the 01/05 date line as well as any additional documentation that may be attached/included.  Students who made less than a 70% in English/Language Arts or math or students who did not pass at least one additional core content area class for the year will receive a Retention Concern Notification letter.  Students in my homeroom will have this letter stapled to the actual report card.

Ms. Thurman’s Classes Received Progress Reports Today!

Students in all of Ms. Thurman’s classes received an updated progress report today.  While this progress report was not schoolwide, it did offer insight to students as to their current standings within our class and provides them with some insight as to what changes they need to make before it is too late.  As evidenced below, students were instructed of the items they could still turn in, albeit late:

Students who received a 70% or lower on today’s progress report are required to return it with a parent signature.

The latest day to turn in any work, late or not, is this Friday, December 15, 2017.
