Teachers are going to begin trying out a new grading program in the third quarter, called engrade. This program should allow students and parents to access grades and information in a more timely manner. Some teachers are using it already! Ask your child if any of their teachers are already using it, and have them show you what you can do using the program. All teachers will be online for the fourth quarter.
We have also begun to use a math program called ALEKS to supplement our math programs. Mr Berta and Ms Matula are leading the charge to assist our students in improving their math skills. Students can use the program to assess their skills and weaknesses, and complete learning opportunities to improve performance. Ask your child if they are using the ALEKS program and if so to show you what they are doing!
