VIEW YOUR CHILD"S GRADES. Students in grades 4-12 have their grades on-line and you can access them by using the button on the left entitled: Parent Access. We are also going to be working harder than ever to make sure that you are aware of your child's missing assignments so that they stay caught up. We are expecting high academic achievement from all of our students and we know that parents can play a very important role in this. On the PARENT ACCESS site, please find the document entitled "Missing Assignment Notice" This is a sample of the letter we will be sending out when needed. WE are encouraging parents to share their e-mail addresses with us so that we can get them out electronically. Please find the form on the PARENT ACCESS entitled Parent E-mail address request: You can fill this out and e-mail to Sandy Melheim @
