I hope you've all had a great week, as we work deeper into the school year. Today, I wanted to share a little bit with you all about ways we can work together for our students academics.

1. I hope you've set up an observer account on Canvas. If you haven't, you can contact our Tech Office for help setting that up. In Canvas, you can check agendas for each class each week. Teachers update these agendas every Monday. It's a great way to keep up with when homework assignments are due. While Canvas does have notification settings for some types of assignments, the best way to make sure you know what is due when is to regularly check teachers' agendas. If you have problems navigating this, please let me know. I'll be glad to help.

2. As we get deeper into the year, you may determine that you'd like to find a student tutor for your child. We have student tutors who are available (you would pay them directly) to help your child in specific subjects. These students are drawn from our academic honors society, Beta Club. If your child would like to request a tutor, very soon we will have forms placed in our Student Services Office. They will pick up a form, fill it out at home, and return it to us. Then, we will pair them with a tutor. 

Once again, we're looking forward to the continuation of a great year. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if we can help or support you in any way.
