HomeworkDaily home practice helps students to reinforce what they are learning in school. It also gives you a chance to watch your child grow! We keep homework pretty simple in our class, though. Students will need to:
- Read or be read to every night (the goal is 20 minutes per day).
- Phonics Practice Pages will be attached to our weekly newsletters starting in October. These should be done with an adult three times a week. Nothing will need to be returned to school for this.
- Additionally, it would be helpful if your are talking to your child about what they are learning in class. Our weekly newsletters can help guide these conversations. This is also where you can find the sight words, letters, etc. they can be practicing
GradesGrades are taken from student work samples, teacher observations, and basic benchmark assessments. Grades on Report Cards are marked as follows:S- for Satisfactory
P- for Progressing
N- for Needs Improvement
As these are end of year goals for Kindergarten, your child may receive a number of “Progressing” grades the first two trimesters.
Report Cards - Family Access
Elementary report cards are issued at the end of each trimester and students are assessed in accordance with Oak Harbor Public Schools board policy. Parents can view their children's information by checking online in Skyward Family Access, a secure system that allows you to check attendance and more. Account information is provided to each family by the school office at the start of the school year. Talk to our school front office about Family Access or learn more here. Skyward Family Access.
