Additional Information:

  • Surveys: Please remember to take a few minutes to complete the leadership surveys for your leads, this is essential in growth and development moving into next school year!
  •  Jupiter Ed Grades: It has come to our attention that there are tutorial videos online showing students how to temporarily change their grades on JupiterEd and other online grading programs. If you suspect this is happening, please do not accept screenshots of grades and ask the students to refresh the screen when they are showing you their grades. Here is a video link showing what they are doing to temporarily change their grade: When the screen is refreshed by clicking on the link and hitting enter, the grade will go back to the original assigned grade.
  • Yearbook: Yearbooks are expected to arrive on May 15th! We ordered 50 additional yearbooks which will be sold in the Media Center after school for $25.00. Once they arrive, we will send out an email, post on social media and add this information to the morning announcements.
  • Class Dojo: Some parents have been contacting the Media Center about their Class Dojo app telling them they need to upgrade to a paid subscription. This is only for their program called Beyond School. Parents still have full access to see their child’s work and message the teacher for free.
  • School Hall Passes: Thank you to everyone who has been using their school hall pass! We hope you are finding them convenient and effective!
