Week 22 - Unit Tests for 6th Grade and Pre-Algebra

Parent Portal Tip 

  1. To find the grades for each class, click on Schedule.  
  2. The second column, labeled SM2, is the summary of semester 2 courses.  
  3. Click on the name of the course (MATH6GD or PREALG7), not the name of the teacher (clicking on the teacher name opens a window to send an email to the teacher).  
  4. At the top of the page, you should see the overall grade for the class and if you scroll down, you can view the grades of each individual assignment in the class.
Math Help
If your child needs additional help, they can go to the Homework Center in the library on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays until 4:15pm or to the Math Lab on Wednesdays or Thursdays until 3:15pm.
