Reading the Report CardConnect Charter values timely feedback for families in relation to student progress and report cards are one of the many ways we communicate with parents about student achievement. Connect Charter provides families with a report card three times a school year.On each report card, you will be provided with information about your child’s progress in citizenship, core subjects (math, science, language arts, and social studies), physical education, and electives.Please note, for semestered courses and courses that have fewer required minutes, grades will only be provided in terms 2 and 3 (examples of these courses include: art; music; outdoor education; health; and creative technology).We strongly encourage families to come to student-led conferences this year. The benefits of this opportunity include:-a lived experience of how and what your child is learning;-the opportunity to talk with a variety of teachers that teach your child;-seeing a variety of learning environments at the school;-engaging with school-based activities that are hosted by the school and school councilTips for Reading Report Cards with Children:This is a snapshot of your child’s learning. They are growing and developing over time in their learning both socially and academically.
- Providing a positive experience when reviewing the report card is important to open dialogue with your child.
- Ask your child what they are most proud of as you read the comments.
- Ask your child if there are any assignments, courses, or activities that really excited them this term.
- Ask your child what is tricky at school. How do they get help with this?
- Consider the areas for growth in the report card; what does your child want to bring attention to?
- If there is confusion related to feedback in the report card, consider looking to the seesaw learning management to provide greater understanding and plan to attend conferences to learn more about progress and to have the opportunity to touch base with the teachers.
- Leave the conversation by saying what you are proud of related to your child’s report card.
We look forward to seeing you at student-led conferences.CONNECT CHARTER SCHOOL
Have a wonderful week, Connect!
