T1 Progress Reports

Term 1 Progress Reports are now available through iParent for all students. During advisory today, students in grades 9, 10, and 11 spent some time discussing progress reports with their advisors. However, progress reports were not printed this year so we encourage all families to view their grades through iParent.
Progress reports are a check-in to see how students are progressing with their learning, with plenty of time remaining in the term to continue improving their grades and comprehension of the material. Students who are struggling are encouraged to meet with their teachers to develop strategies to increase their comfort with the material and their understanding of the course. Guidance counselors are also available for any students or parents/guardians who want to discuss progress in courses.
For families who do not yet have an iParent account, please sign up here.
