  • PARENT PORTAL is a great tool for parents and students to use to keep up with grades. Please ask the office for your specific login information.

    ∞ If your student has a failing grade these are important questions to ask your student:


    1. Are you turning in your work?

    2. Are you making corrections to assignments that you receive with a failing grade?

    3. Are you working out all of your problems?

    4. Are you asking questions and trying your best?

    5. ?Are you attending tutorials?


    If the answer is no, continue until all answers are YES. (You can do it- just TRY!)

    When the answer is yes to all of these questions, it is time to have a parent/teacher conference to determine a plan of action for your student to succeed. Please contact me to schedule!
