Parents & Students, here is our upcoming week at a glance.  Let’s make it a great week!


  • Math and Science Grades are posted and updated WEEKLY on Aspire. Remember to check the Aspire Gradebook online weekly at home, and as regularly as possible with your child. 

  • Students should turn in any missing, or Zero assignments within one week to improve their grades. 

  • If a student needs more time for class work, he or she can take it home to complete it as homework. The assignment needs to be turned in the next day. 

  • Students also have opportunities to retake exams and quizzes to improve their grade. Remember, responsibility is one of our school-wide goals this year along with “Be Respectful, Be Prepared, and Be Safe.”
