COMMUNITY UPDATE!

 

November 1, 2018


 

Dear Michelson Community,

 

It is hard to believe that we are already into November and the holiday season will be fast upon us!  The kids continue to display a tremendous work ethic and we are so proud of them.

 

As the trimester closes, we will be sending home the new Standards Based Report Cards.  Here is a little bit of information on what Standards Based Report Cards are and how they work:

 

What is a Standards Based Report Card?

A standards based report card evaluates each child on a set of predetermined grade-level skills and provides uniform consistency of assessment across the grade level.  The student demonstrates mastery on a group of assessments relating to the Common Core Standards. This provides parents with realistic information on how well their child is progressing on specific skill sets through consistent assessment measures.  The report card reflects a score of 1-4 for each assessed skill.

 

How is a Standards Based Report Card Different?
Traditional letter grade report cards factored in a student’s work production, effort, and attitude.  These items are now included in the Learner Behaviors section of the Standards’ Based Report Card and reflect the important work ethic and attitude values as a separate item from demonstrating concept mastery.  The key in a standards based report card is does your child have the ability to demonstrate the required skill independently on an assessment and that is how the proficiency standard is applied based on the assessment results.  The Learner Behavior section defining work ethic behaviors is equally important to the content strand assessments as a student’s attitude and work completion are important to student success in school and in the future work environment.

 

Please let us know if you have any questions.  Future important dates:

November 21, 2018  Minimum Day

November 22 and 23, No School

December 7, Minimum Day

December 19, Winter Program Morning Performance 9:00 a.m.

December 19, Winter Program Evening Performance 6:30 a.m.

 

Best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving season!    Many thanks to all of our volunteers who continue to serve our students.  We are very appreciative of your time and efforts!

 

 

Sincerely yours,

 

 

Louise Simson

Principal
