We are a third of the way through the school year.  Our high school students have had their quarterly review and update on their grades and progress. Our Nature Academy students have competed their first trimester, students have turned in their self-reflections on their progress standards-aligned grading.  Our K-8 homeschool students are continuing with their work, with teacher meetings and/or check-ins continuing and will have their full reflection time at the close of the semester.
