Grading Guidelines




    In Kindergarten, we grade for mastery of skills. Students are not assigned numerical or letter grades. Each nine weeks, we continually monitor students through formal and informal assessments to check for mastery of a skill. We will conference with each parent in late September or October.  Parents receive progress reports 3 times a year and report cards every 9 weeks, as well as regular communication through daily folders and assignments to let parents know how their child is doing.  We also test using the DRA (twice yearly) and IStation for ELAR (monthly).  In Math, we test using the TEMI (3 times yearly) and IStation (monthly).  If you have concerns about your child's progress or questions about their report card, please contact me by phone or email so we can set up a time to discuss their performance.
