Southview PS Weekly Update
Week of February 19th, 2019
Term One Reports Come Home this Week.
On February 20th, you will receive your child's Term 1 Provincial Report Card. The intent of the Provincial Report Card is for the teacher to report students' achievement of curriculum expectations introduced and developed from September to January/February of the school year, as well as students' development of the learning skills and work habits during that period.
Teachers take various considerations into account before making a decision about the grade to be entered on the report card. The teacher will consider all evidence collected through observations, conversations, and student products (e.g., tests/quizzes, performance tasks, assignments for evaluation). Teachers will weigh all evidence of student achievement use their professional judgement to determine the student’s report card grade. The report card grade represents a student’s achievement of overall curriculum expectations, as demonstrated to that point in time.
We encourage you to review the report card with your child and contact his/her teacher to seek clarification as needed. This is an excellent opportunity for families to celebrate successes, encourage a Growth Mindset and set goals for Term 2.
