November 2015 Carta en español
First, I want to thank all families that had an opportunity to join us for our PTO sponsored curriculum night last month. Our fourth grade students won the cookie party for having the most families attend. For those who couldn’t attend, but have volunteered to support other school initiatives, we really appreciate you’re the time you take out of your busy schedule to support our school.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already November and we are getting ready to complete the first marking period. I wanted to take some time to review the report card system that we use to communicate student progress.
For grades K-5, report card indicators are standards- based and there is a place for teachers to add comments. The K-5 scoring system is a 9-point system (see scale # 1 below) and the “Responsibility of the Learner” section which is scaffolded into grade bands (K, 1-3, and 4-5) (See chart #2). The Grade 6 report card is assignment-based. Students will receive letter grades for their classes (see scale).
Thank you for all your support,
