3rd Quarter Progress Reports Sent Home in Friday Folders

Third Quarter Progress Reports were sent home in Friday Folders. Please ask your child to see their report.

The cover sheet will provide information on our 5 Be's (Be Kind, Safe, Cooperative, Respectful & Responsible), attendance, teacher comments and the percentage of mastery in each area as determined by your child's most recent assessment. You will also find a student report in your child's Friday Folder. This report lists all the standards that have been taught in reading and math third quarter, the number of assessments given on the standards and your child's score on each assessment. You may log into Mastery Connect anytime and see your child's progress on the standards taught. If you have any questions about the progress report, please contact your child's teacher or my office. We are happy to explain the new reports to you. Our goal is to share your child's strengths and weaknesses as learner with you the best way possible.
