The end of Quarter 1 is rapidly approaching. Parents are encouraged to connect with their son or daughter's teachers over the next two weeks to monitor student progress. Remote Learning is a new experience for everyone; therefore, effective communication and partnership is essential to ensure every student's success. Our team is prepared to provide quality and rigorous instruction that will help students remain on track; however, we need parents, guardians, and students to partner with us.
Quarter 1 ends Thursday, October 29th. We are in the final stretch, so let's work collaboratively to finish strong! If you have any questions about Curriculum or Instruction or having difficulty connecting with a teacher, please contact Mrs. Veriner James, Assistant Director, VJames@distinctiveschools.org.
