Learning Resources

  • By working together, we can create a successful learning environment for students at school and at home. Here are some highlights of what's happening in our classroom.

    In order for your student to be the most successful in Kindergarten, it is expected that you and your child read together for 15 minutes every night. Reading is very important and creates the strongest foundation for all learning...it provides the background knowledge and vocabulary your kiddo needs to acquire new concepts. Please document your nightly reading and return your child’s reading homework folder for a celebration when you and your child have read 500 minutes together!
    It is the responsibility of each student to work towards improvement of his or her grade. Students will receive one of the following scores in each area: satisfactory (S);  Progressing (P); or needs improvement (N) in skill areas of each subject.  In Kindergarten, we do not offer O’s as a grading option because we are all progressing in a variety of basic skills.
    Grades in our classroom are calculated by homework completion, classroom participation, and several assessments given throughout the trimester e.g. math tests, one on one reading fluency checks, and writing samples.
    Participation and completion of work (at school and at home) is what we focus on for the first quarter. As we settle into the year, assignments will become more complex, but participation and striving to complete work are two big things we try to push in Kindergarten.  We have a lot of foundational skills to cover, so I make note of which students are focused and trying their best each day. 
    Report Cards-Family Access
    Elementary school report cards are available at the end of each grading period and students are assessed in accordance with Oak Harbor Public Schools board policy. Account information is provided to each family by the school office at the start of the school year. Talk to your school office about Family Access or learn more here.
    I will include comments with all my report cards so please let me know if you have any questions.
