This survey helps us to assess areas of school culture/climate, students’ growth mindset, self-management, self-efficacy, and social awareness. Please remind your child to bring their laptops to school so they can take the survey. There are only 6 “loaner” Chromebooks on campus so it is important for students to bring their laptops.
