Conferences are coming up soon on 11/23-11/25! Please refer to your teacher’s newsletter for information on how to sign up for conferences and what to expect during your conference this year, as they may run differently than previous years.
Report cards will be coming by December 18th. This year they will be delivered via The Source. Please refer to your child’s teacher communication about which subjects will be scored this trimester.
As you can imagine, assessment can be difficult in remote learning. Students who are not participating in the school-based lessons for a subject area will receive an asterisk (*) and comment, rather than a score. For students who are participating, teachers will use the in-lesson check-ins when students share their work on camera, and through applications such as Seesaw, One Note, Schoology, and other online tools used for student work. For students who don’t use cameras during the lesson check-ins, teachers will do the best they can with the information they have from our other tools. All grades (K-5) will be using the asterisk and comments for science for this trimester.
We appreciate your role in helping students gain academic independence during this trimester while learning virtually! At school, we are used to watching students struggle with new learning and we can appreciate that this can be hard at home. The struggle is where the learning happens. We are all learning a lot and we thank you for celebrating your child’s willingness to do the hard things.
