Middle School vs. High School Grading Scales
Parents, Guardians, & Students: PWCS uses a much easier grading scale for sixth and seventh graders. In 8th grade, we use the tougher, numeric, high school grading scale, which often results in lower grades/report-card shock. 6th & 7th graders are encouraged to use this GRADE CONVERSION TOOL (Click Here) to enter their assignment grades from Parent Portal to see what their grades would be if they were in 8th grade. It's important to maintain good work habits to be ready for 8th grade and beyond...

A Free and Easy Way to Support GP
Leaves are falling and our school garden needs as many as we can get to make compost and mulch for our garden beds.  We​ can only use leaves from untreated lawns.  Please consider bringing in your bagged leaves to the school instead of leaving them at the curb.
