Weekly Notes from the Head of Middle School, 3/27

Dear Middle School Families,

With the end of Quarter 3 upon us, it is a good time to assess the progress made and the work still left to accomplish. I’d like to remind you that the report cards you will be receiving are only progress reports, not final grades. School transcripts record only the semester grades, hence, there is time to improve if the need exists. I encourage you to support your middle schooler as much as possible this final quarter so they can finish the year strong.
