Report Cards Came Home Today!!

Today you will find your child's report card for the third nine weeks. We added a few more standards this time around. The rest of the standards, where you see blanks, will be added the last 9 weeks. If you have any questions at all, please let me know. I am always more than happy to meet with you and talk about how to help your child. The goal is for your child to master (get a 4) on all of the standards listed on the report card (as well as the other academic standards for each content area).

It is really hard to believe we are in the last 9 weeks of the school year. It seemed like just yesterday that we were starting the year, going over rules, learning procedures, and getting to know each other. This year has flown by! We still have A LOT to do before the year is over!
