Report CardsThe sole purpose of the report card is to convey helpful information about the child and his work from the teacher to the parents. Report cards are issued every nine weeks. Parents are encouraged to discuss the report card with their child and to stay in touch with their child’s teacher concerning the grades. Please sign and return report cards to the school the next day.Grading PolicyKindergarten - 2nd GradeThe Primary Report Card uses a rubric approach with a 4, 3, 2, 1 scale. This approach allows teachers to communicate cumulative student progress at an identified point in time. Expectations for each academic area increase as the year progresses. This means that a child can receive a 3 during one marking period and then receive a 2 the next due to the rise in expectations each quarter and/or the change in skills taught.
