Dear Students and Parents,
This week marks the end of the first quarter of our school year, and also is the time you will be seeing the first Progress Report for your student.
I want to share some valuable information with regards to the grading process for the school that will help you as you read through this Progress Report.
First, this is NOT an official transcript or Report Card.
This is a record for you and for teachers to check in with students on the Progress so far, so that we can work towards your student gaining more success as they transition into regular participation, homework, classwork, projects, quizzes, and tests.
The OFFICIAL Report Card is distributed at the end of Semester One.
The Report Card includes the grades of this progress report, along with the grades of the next quarter.
These TWO quarters then are worth 80% of the students final Semester Grade.
The students will all be taking formal Final Exams in each of their subjects.
The Final Exam is worth 20% of the students final Semester Grade.
This means there are plenty of opportunities for your students to work towards the maximum success and keep improving their grades.
Some things of note:
▲ If your student is achieving a GPA lower than a 2.0, or below a C in any subject class, they will be required to begin tutoring sessions in that subject.
▲ These will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays and your student will not have the privilege of attending an extra-curricular club until they achieve a higher grade in the class.
▲ Additionally, there will be some students who we have noticed that need extra help with Reading and Comprehension in English, we have a Literacy Coordinator at our campus that will be offering more support for these students to assist them in working faster towards better English skills.
I am now offering Office Hours Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:00-4:00 p.m. I will be working towards expanding these to include more days in the future. If you would like to meet with me, please feel free to email me anytime to schedule an appointment, or request one through your students Homeroom Teacher.
