This is a time of the school year where teachers feel a real sense of magic happening in their classrooms. They know their students well, they have identified how their students learn best, and they understand the individual learning needs of each child in their classroom. Things are humming!
During the past few weeks, teachers have spent time assessing their students and analyzing the student’s academic information to accurately identify and document how each child is progressing at this point in the school year. Teachers have completed their first trimester report cards, and they will be available in Aeries next week.
Bacich report cards are based on the Common Core Standards. These standards guide specific classroom learning at each grade level. It is our goal that each child meet the Common Core Standards by the end of each school year,. However, we know that not all children follow the same path or the same time frame in their achievement or their progress at school.
- Second trimester report cards will be available Monday, December 17 at 8 a.m.
To access student report cards, log in to the Aeries Parent Portal and click on Grades, then Standards Based Report Card.
That page will display standards and grades, but if you click the Print button just under your student’s picture, the report card will display in a printable format and will be much easier to read.
You will note that there are no teacher comments on the first trimester’s report cards. Since Parent Teacher Conferences aligned with the Fall Report Card, communication took place during this time.
We hope that our families will first celebrate and acknowledge the success and accomplishments of their children when reading the report cards. We encourage you to make this the main focus of the conversation when discussing your child’s progress and efforts. We know that elementary age children tend to see themselves through the eyes of the people who love and teach them. Being positive and encouraging is important. If there are areas of growth, talk with your child about setting personal goals and working to accomplish them in the months ahead.
School is a place where we celebrate our students’ success and support them as they master their challenges. We also know that they flourish best when the adults in their lives provide positive guidance and work as a team with the school . We thank you for your partnership, and we thank you for sharing your children with us.
