Students with Semester 1 incompletes are being supported in creating an Academic Success Plan (ASP) and are responsible for making-up Semester 1 credit by April 17 to avoid Summer Learning. Incomplete course grades at the end of the year for Semester 1 and/or Semester 2 will result in Summer Learning. We need your partnership to support your child and their teachers in ensuring a strong and successful finish to the school year. Get in touch with teachers using the staff page on our website.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership with your child’s education! We are committed to a successful finish to the 2021-2022 school year. We are proud of the work our students and staff have done this year to prioritize learning in academics, the arts, and social-emotional learning and we are committed to a successful finish to the 2021-2022 school year.


HIGH SCHOOL ARTISTS AND FAMILIES - Please keep in mind that High School Arts Classes are the first and second period of school.  It is imperative that your students arrive at school on time so they do not miss Arts Instruction.  Their Arts classes are graded and if they are not completed they will be required to participate in Summer Learning.

ALL ARTISTS AND FAMILIES - Please remember that in every Arts class participation is 50% of their final grade.  This includes participating in class discussions, accomplishing all classwork and tasks and practicing a growth mindset.  If you have questions about how that specifically applies to your Artist’s Arts Class, please reach out to their teacher!

SYNERGY - Did you know you can check your student’s art grade on Synergy StudentVue/ParentVue?  Make sure to check it regularly for the most up to date student grades!
