Parent Access to Student Grades

PowerSchool gives parents access to their student’s grades and more. Go to  and click on Parents tab. Go to PowerSchool Parent Portal. Click Login Page .  Enter your Username and Password. Once you see your student’s class schedule and grades, click on the grade for each class and you can see the list of assignments and grades for the assignments. We encourage students to check their grades at least once a week to stay current on assignments and academic progress. Parents can also track their student’s attendance.

If you do not have the current username/password for your student, please contact your student’s counselor (see below).

Academic: Counselors work with students to maintain academic progress and seek assistance when needed. The focus is on organization skills, time management, and following through on assignment completion. Counselors present guidance lessons to students explaining GPA, test results, and academic goals. 8th Grade High School Orientation will take place in the spring.
