Robertson Parent Letter

Report Cards Jan. 2021

Report card clarification:

Dear Parents and Guardian’s,

This “New Year” we commit ourselves to being Resilient Robertson Rockets! Soon, you will be receiving your student’s 1st Semester Report Card, which will reflect classwork, participation and engagement, during remote learning. Our goal for this report card is to celebrate the hard work of students and encourage those that need extra help. We are excited to share your student’s progress!

Teachers have selected scores based on current academic progress. If your student has not turned in any work and/or they have not made significant progress toward meeting a standard their teacher will assign a “1”. In this case, you can check for comments in the report card to further explain the score your student earned.

The Digital Citizenship is a new section added to highlight student performance and responsibility using technology. This is the place where teachers will input what has been observed during class meetings, small groups and other technology platforms.

"Specialists (Music & PE) normally give 2 grades: one that assesses skills based and one for participation. At Robertson our Specialists will provide participation grades. They will include how many Google Meets your student has attended and how many assignments they have completed. Their overall participation grade will be based on skill and participation combined."

We understand each student has a unique learning environment and we are working hard with you to keep your student engaged and challenged. Despite all that we have faced in remote learning, I am proud that we have come together as a “school community of learners” and we will continue to dedicate ourselves to communicating with you and keeping you up to date!

Your Principal,

TJ Bell-Davis
