New frontiers for new learning

Dear parents and guardians,
First term report cards will be sent home on Wednesday February 12, 2014. The report card describes the achievement of the overall curriculum expectations for each subject. The report also outlines how well your child has demonstrated the development of learning skills and work habits essential to succeed in school and daily life. This report card represents evidence of student learning that has been gathered from September until early February.
We encourage you to review and discuss the report card with your child and take the opportunity to celebrate your child’s accomplishments. Space is provided at the bottom of pages three and four to identify steps for improvement together with your child.
The Ministry of Education and our school board both have some resources you may find useful attached here for your reference:

Thank you to the families who joined us last night and this morning for Parent & Guardian/Teacher interviews. We appreciate this opportunity to discuss your child’s Progress Report Card. The evidence is clear: students perform better in school if their parents or guardians are involved in their children’s education. We thank you for your partnership now and for the coming months of school. Now is a time to celebrate the progress your child has demonstrated and set goals for future progress.
The Progress Report cards provide us a starting point in what should be ongoing conversations this year on your child’s progress. The learning skills portion of the progress report cards are an important starting point:
– independent work
– self regulation
Our students should now reflect on these six areas and ask themselves: what areas can I commit to improving in the next few months of school?
Next, we should consider the academic areas of our programs and ensure our students set goals for themselves. We must look at our students’ strengths to help support them in the goals they set for themselves for improvement.
What is one subject area you want to support your child in to improve?
Thank you again for your partnership with us now and for the next important months of school.
