Elementary Report Card Information
2021 – 2022
We are pleased to welcome our students for the 2021 – 2022 school year. This year our report cards are looking a little different than last year as we no longer have a remote option. They will continue to be mailed home three times a year and will now resume numerical grading systems for some of the core content areas.
The continuation of a trimester system allows more time for students to demonstrate growth and proficiency in meeting grade level expectations and standards. You can expect the following:
- Grades K – 6 will grade and assess in trimesters. The first trimester began September 7, 2021, the second trimester will begin December 11, 2021, and the third trimester will begin March 19, 2022.
- Students this year will now receive a numerical grade based on a scale of 100 for Social Studies and Science instead of a proficiency grade.
- English as a New Language and Special Education teachers will continue to be able to provide an effort grade as well as individual comments for students in their programs.
- Separate NWEA reports will be mailed out twice a year to indicate individual student growth in both Reading and Math.
If you have any questions concerning the trimester report cards, contact your child’s teacher.
