Standards Based Grading
The Methacton School District uses a standards-based grading system for students in grades K-4. This system helps us more accurately measure students’ mastery of PA Core Academic Standards in all subjects. The elementary report cards have been revised to reflect the changes to the state standards and Methacton’s curricula. The goal of this approach to reporting is to provide parents, students, and teachers with a detailed picture of what students know and are able to demonstrate. The information provided on the report card encourages dialogue about areas of strength and need, and how our students can continue to grow academically.
This article, Seven Reasons for Standards-Based Grading, explains more about standards-based grading.
As your child’s teacher explained during our Back-to-School night, I CAN statements have been developed to share with you what skills your child is being assessed on and the expectation of mastery for each trimester. The I CAN statements are listed on our MSD Family Center.

Student Self-Screening Checklist
Please review the Student Self-Screening Checklist with your student every morning before school. If they have 2 symptoms from the first category OR 1 symptom from the second category please keep them home. Call the Absence line (610) 831- 5325 and report your student absent and symptomatic. Your student should be tested for Covid-19 and results sent to the school nurse. We are requiring a negative test result before your student can return to school. Please call Mrs. Cramer our school nurse for any questions. She can be reached at (610) 489-5000 extension 41206.
Health and Safety Plan
The school district recently adopted an update to the health and safety plan.
Here is the Link for the health and safety plan. Please take the time to read it.
Masks are required inside the building.
Second Graders learned about the Conflict Escalator. Conflict, or a disagreement, does not have to be a bad thing. Sometimes a conflict can be a way to discuss a difference of opinions. Some strategies students practiced included: apologize, share & take turns, rock paper scissors, talk it out, “I feel” statements, and agreeing to disagree. Next week students will learn a few more strategies and how to decide when to use each strategy. You can practice talking things out when you have a conflict at home. For more conflict solving strategies, contact Lori Shaw, School Counselor at 610-489-5000 X41207 or LShaw@methacton.org
