Grades for 3-5 Students

The 2nd Quarter ends on December 21st.   In order for teachers to have time to finalize grades, the last day to submit 2nd quarter assignments will be Wednesday, December 16th. Please log into PowerSchool to review your child’s grades and any missing assignments. Wed. 12/9 is an Early Release day so that would be a great day to catch up on any missing work.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools recently began providing student email access for scholars in grades PK through 5. Now, CMS students in all grades have access to student email via Google Mail.

Student email accounts are for use in conjunction with coursework and day-to-day educational activities. Email offers a confidential and secure channel for students to communicate with CMS teachers and administrators. In some cases due to age or accessibility, guardians or parents may use the service on behalf of a student.
