LEGS FOR LITERACY - THIS SUNDAY
Progress reports were sent home this past Thursday for students who may be in danger of not receiving their credit for their courses, based on attendance or missed assignments. Perhaps you can ask your sons or daughters how things are going in their courses. Teachers are always willing to answer questions, so feel free to email them.
