Report Cards: Report cards were mailed home this weekend. Remember that these are readiness grades which indicate if your child needs more time to develop in certain areas. If you have any questions, you are welcome to schedule an appointment for a conference. If you have not received the report cards by the end of the week, please visit the school office.
