Kindergarten Program Information: Report Cards

 

The Kindergarten Report Card provides parents with information on their child’s progress in Personal and Social Development, Mathematics, English/Language Arts, Writing, Social Studies, Science, Health/Safety, Physical Education, Art, and Music.  Progress is assessed using quarterly benchmarks for each concept or skill.  Progress is indicated according to the following:

 

            O = Outstanding – independently (your child consistently demonstrates a concept or skill when assessed using grade level benchmarks for that quarter)

            S = Satisfactory – minimal support (your child demonstrates a concept or skill with minimal support when assessed using grade level benchmarks for that quarter)

            N = Needs Improvement – dependent (your child does not demonstrate a concept or skill without assistance when assessed using grade level benchmarks for that quarter)

            / = Does not apply at this time (the concept or skill has not been assessed or taught during this marking period)

 

The Kindergarten Report Card is completed and sent home to parents 4 times a year.
