Hello Families,

Today marks the end of Quarter 2. This impacts Algebra, Spanish I and II, and French I and II. The PowerSchool portal will be closed from this afternoon until Wednesday morning for teachers to finalize grades. Once midterms are completed and graded you will be able to view that grade in the comments.

In addition, this will impact Intro to French and Intro to Spanish in grade 6. They will be finalizing their grades as this marks the end of their semester. Tomorrow 6th grade students will start their new language.

For the remainder of classes, the trimester will be over on March 7th and report cards will be printed for Q2 and T2.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions,

Ashley Molden
Assistant Principal
