PowerSchool Access for Students

Students now have access to PowerSchool. You can check your grades and attendance very easily. If your teacher uses the Gradebook (like I do) you can see individual grades and even check if you are missing any work.

Login is done just like you are logging into a school computer.

Here is the link:

Make sure you also check to see if there are any "CUTS" that should be "EAB" (excused absence) and get a note from your parent or have your parent call the school.

UPDATE - I will be absent on Thursday - Quiz now Monday

Due to a family illness, I will be out on Thursday. So, your quiz on Chapter 6 and 7 will be on Monday.

Make sure you review the chapters and the homework. Here are some review sites: - Chp 3 is Work, Power, Energy and Chp 4 is Momentum.

Try your homework problems again without looking at solutions and make sure you can do them.

Email me with any questions.
