There are many ways a child’s progress
is reported throughout the year. In
order to be sure that parents have a thorough understanding of student progress
we have developed the following process:
Classroom Social Media accounts
There are many different ways to
communicate to parents through social media in today’s world. We have given the choice to teachers to
communicate through either a classroom blog, Twitter or Instagram. At least monthly, each teacher updates their
blog, Twitter or Instagram accounts. These
accounts communicate what children are learning and how they are taking up the
work in the classrooms. Things you may
see on these accounts are class projects, inquiries, homework, instructions,
links to websites etc. Please ask your
child’s teacher for more information on subscribing to their classroom accounts
Parent, Student & Teacher Conferences
During these meetings, parents will
talk about questions such as:
What gains have students made over the past 3
What gains have been made on the parent’s
goals? The student’s goals? The IPP goals?
Are there new goals for the coming months?
What are the next steps for students and how
will the student be supported?
How has your teacher-parent communication plan
What were the results of the Kindergarten Eye
First Report Cards
The written report card with comments
will be sent home for parents to read.
It will support information shared in the conferences, as well as on-going
Teacher & Parent communication.
Mathematics Celebration of Learning – all grades
This Celebration of Learning is
designed to provide students with opportunities to share their mathematical learning
with our families so that parents better understand the work students are
engaged in and can see a wide variety of evidence of student learning.
Year End Celebration of Learning – all students
End of Year Celebration of Learning is a celebration of the Artist-in-Residence
work taking the form of an art gallery where families can celebrate student
success while learning more about art appreciation in school.
