Posting Student Grades    

Teachers at some grade levels will post student assignment scores, homework scores and test grades on-line at the Power School Portal. Teachers will post grades in a timely manner. Parents will have access to their own children’s grades.                                     

 

Progress Reports

Students in grades 4 – 8 receive Progress Reports, which are e-mailed to parents mid- trimester.  These Reports indicate how the students have performed so far and what final grade they can expect if they continue in the same level of performance.  Accordingly, a failure at this time is not a final matter.  There is time to improve before the end of the trimester.   Progress reports do not become part of the child’s permanent record.

 

Report Cards

Report cards are issued following the completion of the grading period.  Please review your child’s progress and contact the student’s teacher if you have questions regarding grades.
