Welcome Back!

As we jump into 2014 and the semester is about to finish, I want to make the parents aware that the K-6 report card will look quite different.  We will continue to have the old style for the rest of the year and in addition to that we will start with a Math Standards Based report card which is aligned to the common core standards.  Look for future info to come.
