Welcome Kindergarten Families! On behalf of the entire Bishop staff and community, welcome to our new Kindergarten students and families! We had a great first week of school together, getting to know one another and quickly becoming collaborative partners within the classrooms and school. I look forward to our work together this year.

These report cards include information on student assessment, accountability, andteacher quality; the report cards may also include other information. They also provide parents and other members of the public a snapshot of student performance and teacher qualifications in their local schools.
