    • Student grades must be in good standing (A, B, or C).

    • No more than 3 tardies between October 15 and November 9.

    • Student must be in good behavioral standing.


    The grade level with the best results will enjoy the activities first!

    With the end of 1st quarter, families can expect to receive report cards the week of November 19th. In addition to receiving report cards you will also receive your student’s Smarter Balance Assessment results from last spring. This will be the official score report from the State of Washington with the same information.
