This semester the 6th grade team is working with a new tool to promote growth for all students based upon their specific needs. In the next few weeks you will see written information on the Scootpad program we will be using. Parents can create a log-on and monitor the specific assigned taskes their child has or is completing. We are excited to see the anticipated growth within all of our 6th graders.
