New Grading System(A standards- based approach) • Indicates where students are toward their academic goal. • Emphasizes the more recent evidence of learning. The K-5 Report Cards to Parents include the following levels of performance: • 4 = Above benchmark / Exceeds current grade level expectations • 3 = Meets benchmark / At grade level expectations • 2 = Approaching benchmark / Improving but not consistent • 1 = Below grade level / Needs more time and support • Blank = Not yet introduced
Communication & Agenda • Email is the best way to get in contact with the team. • Check your students agenda for homework. • Teachers will post homework and projects on their webpages. • Students are allowed on campus at 7:45. • If you are interested in volunteering for field trips, classroom help, etc. please let us know. We always appreciate the help.
