Principal's Coffee and FOC meeting
This Wednesday at 9:15, join Jenn Clifford and Christine Fichera, our elementary math coordinator, as they share about the way our students learn math today. Specifically, they will talk about mathematical fluency as accuracy, flexibility, and efficiency. Come learn how and why students learn their math facts, it's different than when we were in school!
We value report cards as one of our important ways to communicate progress with families. The students' performance connected to a specific learning standard is evaluated on an academic performance indicator scale, ranging from N (student is not yet demonstrating progress toward the standard), B (student is beginning to progress toward standard), P (student is progressing toward consistent and independent proficiency of the standard) and M (student consistently and independently demonstrates mastery of the standard).
Each child will receive evaluative marks from their classroom teacher in social skills, language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Teachers will continue to comment on students' progress in social areas as well as the academic areas in this text box each term. In addition, specialist teachers will provide marks and comments in each of their respective disciplines. As has been our practice in years past, Kindergarten students will receive their first report cards in at the mid-year mark.
A note about report cards from the Elementary Math Coordinator
committed to supporting all students in their development as mathematical
thinkers. Please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher should you have any
questions regarding the report card.
