I hope you had a great first week of December, and are looking forward to our upcoming break. There will be a one hour early release next Friday, December 16th.

Quarter 1 Report Cards
Quarter 1 grades are now posted and viewable on The Source. In an effort to reduce waste, Nathan Hale no longer mass-mails hard copies of report cards. To see your student’s report card, log into your Source account and click on “Performance and Progress Reports” on the left-hand side of the screen. If you’re having trouble logging onto The Source, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like a hard copy mailed to you, please contact our registrar, Lori Miller, at email@example.com.
