Progress report cards for Grades 1-6 students were distributed on Thursday, November 1, 2018.  

With the Ontario Ministry of Education electronic report card, there are possibilities of human and technical errors.  Please contact your child’s teacher(s) in order to clarify any omissions or errors.

Please remember to return the envelope and to sign and return the response form (bottom of page 2) of the progress report card to your child’s teacher before Friday, November 8, 2018.   The response form will be filed in the Ontario Student Record Card (OSR).

Please Note:

It is not mandatory that all subjects checked off as ‘progressing very well’ or ‘progressing well’ be accompanied by a written comment. When the IEP box or ESL/ELD box is checked it indicates that achievement is based on expectations modified from the curriculum expectations for the grade. When NA is checked on the progress report card, it indicates that no instruction is being offered for this subject or strand at this time.

Parent-Teacher Conferences for Kindergarten and Grades 1 - 6 students will be held on Thursday, November 8, 2018 from 3:30 -7:00 p.m.

Ten-minute conferences will be scheduled on this day.  For scheduled conferences to be successful, the time limits set must be respected.  Should you require a longer period of time for your conference, please contact the teacher to arrange a conference on a mutually convenient date and time. Parents who have recently discussed their child’s progress with the teachers or who have regularly kept in contact with teachers may consider these contacts as your “Progress Report Card Conference”.  Your child will bring home your scheduled appointment time by Friday, November 2, 2018.    If you do not receive an appointment time by Tuesday, November 6, 2018, please contact your child’s morning teacher.   It is not necessary for your child to attend the parent-teacher conferences.  

On November 19, 2018, the Kindergarten students will bring home their November Progress Reports (Kindergarten Initial Observations Reports). Parent Teacher Conferences for Kindergarten students will be scheduled for November 8, 2018.

Below are some suggestions as to how to prepare for your Parent-Teacher Conference:

  • Ask if there is anything your child wants you to discuss with the teacher.

  • Review recent test scores, notebooks, assignments, projects, and agenda.

  • Bring your child’s progress report to the conference.

  • Do not hesitate to ask what the various report card terms mean.

We look forward to seeing you at the conferences
