The time is here for Kindergarten testing for report cards. Kindergarten Report Cards will be handed out at Parent-Teacher Conferences. We use Standards-Based Report Cards and your child will receive a score from 1-5. A score of "3" means that your child is on grade-level, exactly where they need to be for this time of the year. A score of "5" indicates that your child is extremely proficient and higher than grade level. Parents often become upset if their child does not receive "5's", however very few fives are given out. A score of "1" would indicate an area of concern for your child.
The first conferences are very important to attend. You will gain a lot of information about your child's progress at that time. Our goal is to help your child grow and develop in all areas of academic and social growth. We do not expect any child to be perfect but encourage all children to do their best and with that we can work together on areas that might need a little extra attention.
I encourage all parents to attend conferences. Please come with any questions or concerns you may have. I will do my best to attend to your concerns. Because we only have 15 minutes to meet, if needed we can always schedule more time outside of conferences to further discuss any concerns.
