Elementary Report Cards

The report card is one of many forms of communication between school and home about the progress students are making toward both Minnesota State Standards and district expectations. A representative team of elementary staff members meets regularly to identify components of our report cards that might be improved. To help families better understand what a grade (4, 3, 2 or 1) looks like for a particular topic, our team developed rubrics for each grade level in the areas of Life Skills, Literacy and Mathematics. In each set of rubrics, you will find a brief explanation of how each of the possible grades (4, 3, 2 or 1) is defined for each item. If, after looking at the rubrics, you still have questions about your child's performance, we encourage you to reach out to your child's teacher for further clarification. As a reminder, the goal is to achieve for mastery of concepts by the end of the school year and grades communicated before the end of the year reflect progress toward that goal for the current reporting period.
