My class challenges me academically. I am learning in class. My class is well managed by my teacher. My teacher is able to help kids with different ability levels. I am able to ask my teacher for extra help when I need it. My homework practices what I've learned in class. I am able to complete my homework without assistance.

It is easy for me to communicate with the administration (Mrs. Harris, Ms. Topliff). It is easy for me to communicate with the counselors. It is easy for me to communicate with the librarian. When I need help, I know whom to ask. I am comfortable asking for help. I use the school's website / teacher website to look up homework. I am well informed of school events and activities. The morning announcements are helpful. I am able to clearly hear and understand the morning announcements. I am getting information from my ASB representative. Leadership students communicate effectively (SSR presentations, etc.)
