Communicating Student Learning
We communicate student learning throughout the school year in a variety of different ways. Most grade levels will employ each of the following methods during the course of the school year:
- 3-Way Interviews (involve parent, student and teacher)
- Student Led Conference
- Mid-Term Reports
- Report Cards
- Phone Calls
- Biweekly Newsletters
- Impromptu Meetings
- Student Presentations
Formal Reporting Systems at the Elementary School
We have four formal quarterly reporting periods.
The First and Third Quarter reports take the form of progress reports and conferences. In the Second Quarter a report card is issued followed by a parent-teacher conference. A final report card is issued in June.
Student Led Conferences will occur in early June when students get to formally share their learning achievements with parents in a structure environment.
Parents are reminded not to wait until these formal reporting dates to occur if you have concerns regarding your child. Please contact your child’s teacher via e-mail, phone or a note, whenever you have a question or concern.
Student Agenda/Homework Log
Students in grades 3-5 have a Student Agenda. This is a notebook in which students record homework assignments and reminders of items to bring to school. There is also space for parents and teacher to write messages to each other. Please check this on a regular basis.
Each teacher will send classroom newsletters through e-mail the first and third week of each unit of inquiry. Please help us be environmentally friendly by providing your teacher with your e-mail address.
