Just like that, we are about to close our gradebooks on another semester of learning and growth on the Ledge. In our high school, Friday January 14th is the final day of classes, however, the semester officially concludes for students on Thursday, January 20th, the final day of Exam Week.
I am very grateful to students, parents, faculty and staff for advancing learning during this very busy semester. Life on the Ledge recently has included challenges for many in our Springs community, including those who are mourning the loss of loved ones, those searching for employment, those recovering from injuries, those experiencing temporary isolation, self doubt, anxiety or depression. Many of these circumstances have been brought about by the lingering stubborn impact of COVID-19 and its variants. Yet despite the difficulty of some weeks this past semester, I have also observed that Ledgers have consistently supported one another, teachers have rededicated their support to students and our parent community has stepped forward to support everyone – including one another – in both direct and indirect ways!
I am grateful to serve within a learning community so rich in goodwill, grit, perseverance and character! Mutual cooperation and a spirit of collaboration will always lead the Springs to positive outcomes. I look forward to Semester II, knowing that we continue to gain strength and wisdom from our shared experience together. Let’s continue to keep the faith, keep learning from one another and keep developing our love for one another.
Skyward Access at the End of Semester I
As is the case at the end of each grading period, access to our Skyward student information system will be blocked to students and parents while teachers finalize and verify grades. This year, access will be restricted from 8:00 a.m. on Friday January 21st to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, January 26. After that time, students and parents will again have full access to Skyward online to view and print Semester I Report Cards. Report Cards are not mailed home.

Our Lady of the Ledge, pray for us!
