One question survey check in

Dear Porter Families,

Based on the survey given at the end of last year, there is one area we have been specifically focusing on since it came up on both the parent and student survey: students treating each other with respect. If you could take 2 minutes and check in by responding to this one question we would very much appreciate it.


The survey will close on Friday noon.

Thank you,

Alyssa Gwinnell, Principal
