Results an ELL Report Cards come home November 14

Look for your child's results report card coming home on Wednesday November 14, 2012. Our students have been engaged in their Laker Life classes to understand how to develop their citizenship, character and personal development at school.  They have generated specific, personal goals in each area.  Our teachers have reviewed the goals and have developed comments that will help students find strategies to attain their goals.  We hope that parents will work with their children at home to support this work.  Students and teachers will have an opportunity to evaluate the goals in March and in June.  A summative evaluation for the work each student does in these areas will be on their June report card.

English second language learners will also have an ELL benchmark reporting coming home on Wednesday.  This should give parents an idea of the level that their child is working at in English and provide strategies for their next steps in learning.

Option classes will be sending home an email mark update on Wednesday as well.  Please try to support your child to complete any outstanding work for their option classes as soon as possible.  Feel free to contact their teachers for support.  Our completion room remains open Monday to Thursday for one hour afterschool in the library to support students with their work.

A mark update for all classes will come home on December 10, 2012.  This will help parents determine which teachers they will want to see at our interviews scheduled for December 20th from 2:00-4:30 PM and December 21st from 9:00-Noon.  You can book your interviews starting at 6:00 AM on December 17, 2012.  Teachers may be inviting some parents in for a group interview prior to the 17th as those parents will have priority at this interview period.

If you have any questions or concerns about reporting, please feel free to attend our parent council meeting tonight, November 13, 2012 at 7 PM in the library commons.
