    MARCH 2022

Online728 Families -

  • Spring has finally sprung as we kick off March! March is a very fast month due to Spring Break. We hope all of our families find the break to be restful and invigorating. Spring also represents standardized testing season for our learners extending through April and May. These tests provide our staff a glimpse into how well our students are growing. They also provide the district with insight into how well our Online728 program is performing compared to our other schools. We encourage all students to try their best on these tests and show us all that you know! 

    Thank you for your continued support with Online728.

    Dr. Rathbun
    Assistant Principal
