Communicating Student Learning
Communicating Student Learning: There are two formal reporting periods, the end of January and the end of June, for all students. Communication with parents/guardians about student achievement will be continuous throughout the year. Communication may include parent/guardian-student-teacher conferences, student-teacher led conferences, phone calls, informal reports and the parent portal. Starting the week of October 13 formative and summative assessments will be posted in the parent portal. Please refer to our website or call the school if you do not know how to access this important tool. Our next parent/guardian-student-teacher conference will be held on March 22 & 23 from 5:00 p.m. till 8:00 p.m.
