First Report Card Key Checkpoint
for Students and Parents, Too

Although the school year won’t end and final grades won’t be assigned for months, the first report cards issued this week are key. They provide an official checkpoint for students and parents on academic performance. Take time to review this initial performance measure, looking for places to praise excellence and for subjects where improvement is needed.

Parental influence on student success cannot be underestimated. When parents are involved in their children’s education at home, they do better in school.  And when parents are involved in school, children go farther in school — and the schools they go to are better.

Parent/teacher relationships make powerful partnerships. Working with your child’s teachers, you can figure out ways to maximize your child’s academic strengths and build up weaknesses.

Rather than wait for the six-week or semester report cards, we recommend monitoring grades more often through Parent CONNECT. Let’s don’t wait for grades to slip. Address any missed assignments or needs for extra help immediately.

Let’s continue to work together to bring out the best in all of our students.  And keep reminding them of all the benefits good grades will help create for their futures.
