  • Illuminate Portal

    Illuminate is a web-based program that teachers use as a grade book as well as generate report cards.  Students and parents will be able to review current progress reports and assignments on Illuminate via the following portal.  The student portal is set up, students simply need to go to Clever on their iPads and then click on the Illuminate icon. 

    The parents should access their student's records on Illuminate weekly to review grades and make sure students are turning in their assignments.

    I hope everyone finds this portal helpful.

    You’re a Gold Ribbon School

    We're a gold ribbon school
    We are friendly and cool
    We work hard and we aim for the best

    Our teachers are great
    Our families - top rate
    We soar into deep falcon pride

    We are safe and on time
    Always ready to learn
    Respect is the name of our game

    So with all we do 
    We love our school
    Keep your eye on the Falcon Pride
