Accessing Report Cards
We are excited to share the progress your child has made since the beginning of the school year!  You will be able to access your child’s report card on Thursday, December 18 via your parent portal.  Complete the following steps to access this information: Log into parent portal; Click on Select a Student; Choose your child; Click on Reports; Click on EPR

You will notice this year that students did not receive a grade for technology. While all students continue to have technology five days a week, we altered the curriculum two days a week to allow students additional time to practice fundamental skills.  This change allows students to develop a strong foundation in technology basics.  In addition, the technology teacher is working collaboratively with classroom teachers to plan technology activities that can be implemented in the classroom. 

Hour of Code
Students across grades K-5 enjoyed learning how to computer program during our Hour of Code! We were excited to participate in this international event and we look forward to doing it again next year!

"It was a really fun experience.  You can incorporate this in your real life.  
You might grow up to be a computer scientist. "
