Reminders!

Please check your child’s grades on PowerSchool as there are just a couple of weeks for make-ups.

Plato Exact Path should be a part of your child’s weekly routine. We encourage students to practice at least 30 minutes per week in math and reading. The program can be utilized during winter break and is a free service provided to help your child fill gaps, accelerate learning, and prepare for the Smarter Balanced tests administered in April.

Happy Holidays! Have a wonderful vacation!
