Report Cards

Dear parents and guardians,

First term report cards will be sent home on February 17, 2016. The report card describes the achievement of the overall curriculum expectations for each subject. The report also outlines how well your child has demonstrated the development of learning skills (grades 1-3) and work habits essential to succeed in school and daily life. This report card represents evidence of student learning that has been gathered from September until early February.

We encourage you to review and discuss the report card with your child and take the opportunity to celebrate your child’s accomplishments. Space is provided at to identify steps for improvement together with your child.

The Ministry of Education and our school board both have some resources you may find useful attached here for your reference:

Progression

Thank you to the families who joined us last night and this morning for Parent & Guardian/Educator interviews. We appreciate this opportunity to discuss your child’s Kindergarten or Progress Report Card. The evidence is clear: students perform better in school if their parents or guardians are involved in their children’s education. We thank you for your partnership now and for the coming months of school. Now is a time to celebrate the progress your child has demonstrated and set goals for future progress.

For students in our FDK program, they have now explore the six learning areas of the program:

Personal and Social Development
Language
Mathematics
Science and Technology
Health and Physical Activity
The Arts

For our JK learners who have just started, you will have a chance to see the program in action during our upcoming observation visits next week. From these visits, you and the team can determine a suitable next step for them in the coming months. For our SK learners, we can consider which of the 6 areas makes the most sense for them to focus on as learners.

For students in grades 1-3, The Progress Report cards provide us a starting point in what should be ongoing conversations this year on your child’s progress. The learning skills portion of the progress report cards are an important starting point:

– responsibility

– organization

– independent work

– collaboration

– initiative

– self regulation

Our students should now reflect on these six areas and ask themselves: what areas can I commit to improving in the next few months of school?

Next, we should consider the academic areas of our programs and ensure our students set goals for themselves. We must look at our students’ strengths to help support them in the goals they set for themselves for improvement.

What is one subject area you want to support your child in to improve?

Thank you again for your partnership with us now and during the next important months of school.

Mr. Collins
