    *Parents--In Parent Portal, music grades are shown as a numeric grade. This is not a true representation of the grading that is done during class. I enter the grades as an alpha grade, and this is how they are shown on the report cards. If you have a concern about your child's grade, please feel free to contact me.


    How does the numeric grade assigned in parent portal transfer to the final report card?

    E = 95

    S = 85

    N = 75

    U = 65
