If you missed "Your Turn To Learn" contact your student's teacher about getting your family packet (PS-8th.) Packets had many helpful resources, including reminders about the organizational structure, homework details, and Smart Tuition. Also included was a MAPs score summary from 12-13' which was the foundation for our 13-14 curricular goals. The number of students performing at or above grade level surpasses area local districts in all categories. But in the spirit of constant improvement, we are continuing to push for even greater growth and achievement by focusing on Math and Literacy.
