    Elementary Report Card Information

    2022 – 2023 

    We are pleased to welcome our students for the 2022 – 2023 school year. This year our report cards will continue to be mailed home three times a year.  Numerical grading systems for some of the core content areas will resume.

    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 begins September 6, 2022, the second trimester will begin December 10, 2022, and the third trimester will begin March 18, 2023.
    • Students will 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 available from teachers 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.
