Last year, our elementary schools joined our middle and high schools in reporting grades at the end of each semester. Previously, elementary report cards were finalized each nine weeks. We have shifted to reporting at the end of each semester so that students have a longer time to demonstrate what they know and can do. Our focus is on mastery learning and supporting a growth mindset in our learners.
The end of the first 9 weeks is Friday, October 13, 2023. While parents are always able to view students’ progress in our Buzz Learning Management System, this checkpoint at the end of the 9 weeks is a great time to check in on how your child is doing. There will still be plenty of time to ask for help if needed, complete work, and bring grades up before the end of the semester when grades are finalized. If you have not yet verified your email address in Buzz, this is an important step to ensure that you are receiving all relevant alerts and information about your child’s progress. Instructions for accessing Buzz are linked here.
Please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher should you have any questions about their progress or to learn more about how you can partner with us to support your child’s academic development.
We look forward to welcoming you to Parent Teacher Conferences in late October. During Parent Teacher Conferences, we encourage a collaborative dialogue that highlights how your student is transitioning throughout the first semester. We look forward to addressing questions parents/caregivers have, sharing relevant information (engagement, strengths, NWEA, classwork, socialization, areas for growth), and establishing on-going means for communication.

Red Ribbon Week - October 23rd-31st
Mrs. Baechle's 3rd Grade CKLA Culminating Activity
The Apples for the Students Program through Strack & Van Til Food Market enables our school to earn items to enhance play and learning experiences for our students. To earn these FREE rewards we simply have to collect as many register receipts as possible from September 1, 2023, through March 31, 2024. Ask your friends, neighbors, coworkers, and relatives to shop at Strack & Van Til Food Market and save every receipt.
There is currently a box in the office at school. Please send the receipts to school with your child as often as possible. Our PTO will count the value of the register tapes collected and redeem them for great educational rewards that benefit our children.
Thank you in advance for your participation!
