Dear Eagles,

This Friday there is no school for students.  Teachers will be here throughout the day working on grades and report cards.  Report cards will come home with students the following Wednesday, March 4th.  Be sure to look for them that day.  Also, you can get online and view JumpRope grades at any time to see how your child is doing.  You can access JumpRope through the Skyward program.
