Greensheets

Greensheets this week have Jupitergrade reports for word study and math for all students.  If you don't see one or either of those reports attached, please contact your son or daughter's core teacher.  As always, the Greensheets should be sent back in Monday morning. 

​Thank You!

Thank you, parents, for the great turn-out at our Open House on Monday night.  Students were proud to present their projects to you all. It is always exciting to see parents and students engaged in conversations about students' research.  The final reports will be in their March portfolios.

Thank you, as well, for chaperoning the dance tonight, and sending in goodies.  Thank you in advance for the support at Fun Night next Friday.  Phew, everyone has been busy!
