    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.
