By working together, we can create a thriving learning environment for students at both school and home. Here are some highlights of what's happening in our classroom.
HomeworkYou can expect your child to have a weekly homework packet sent home every Monday and due back every Friday. Included in this packet will be a reading fluency builder that you are will need to time for 1 minute, an English language arts practice sheet that is specific to your child, and a math assignment. Also, 10 minutes of dedicated reading and conversation about a text is essential to their literacy growth. This work will be reviewed, so students are expected to try it first on their own. However, it is essential that you look it over with your child to demonstrate the importance of double-checking. I will not be grading each homework problem but will be keeping track of whether or not your student is practicing responsibility by turning their homework in consistently.
GradesDaily Work:Students will be evaluated regularly to monitor their progress. Since many assignments are completed together in class, not every assignment will be graded. Grading will be based on a combination of daily work, informal assessments, tests, and class participation.Grades/Progress Reports:At the end of each trimester, Progress Reports will be sent home with your child. Students will be assessed in the following way:O (Consistent and Outstanding): Student demonstrates superior performance and skills beyond grade-level expectations.S (satisfactory): Student demonstrates a solid performance appropriate to content and grade level. Satisfactory is a strong grade. It shows a student is performing at and meeting the expected grade level requirements.P (progressing): Student demonstrated partial accomplishment of knowledge and skills, or requires support to demonstrate an understanding of skills. Student is progressing toward grade-level requirements.N (needs to improve): Student is not making satisfactory progress toward grade-level requirements.
Report Cards-Family AccessElementary 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.
