Room 118- Dear Families,

Please discuss with your student the rules for school. Some students have received BUMPs this week. Students also received their first science grade and writing grade. Most grades were not wonderful so students were extended grace & mercy for Science. On Monday your student will bring home both Science grades. Many students did not listen nor did they follow directions which produced a low grade. Students were allowed a retake both grades will come home on Monday. Please sign both papers, discuss with your student your academic expectations, and have them share their academic plan for great grades. I thank you for your continued support as we work together to ensure student success. Please remember to check “CPS Parent Portal” to remain informed of your student’s grades. Have a wonderful weekend.
