What is the Common Core Curriculum? We have adopted a new curriculum along with most of the states in the USA. This curriculum is based on performance standards and includes opportunities for deeper thinking. Our new report card is based on the Common Core Standards.
Our school year is divided into four quarters. There are particular skills that we focus on in each quarter. As the quarters progress, so do our expectations. Our report card is a progress report that allows for you to see your child’s progression of the skills being taught. Letter grades are not given. We have a continuum of levels that your child will progress through. The levels are as follows:
1= limited progress
3= Achieving (This is the goal.)
4= Mastery (This is above and beyond the goal)
for taking the time to attend Curriculum Night!
I look forward to working with you and your child this year. It is going to be a wonderful year filled with exciting learning activities!
