Student Report Cards / Scale
Report Card Information
Communication between home and school is a central element necessary to insure a positive school experience for every child. Student progress reports are issued quarterly at the middle school and by trimester at the elementary level. These reports are intended to communicate your child’s progress in school, both academically and socially. Parents are encouraged to talk with their child, as well as the appropriate teacher, on a regular basis to ensure a successful school experience.
