Report Cards

Staff are presently working hard to prepare first term report cards, which will be issued on Friday, December 16th, with the exception of the three divisions who did not hold goal setting conferences in October. These three divisions will receive their report cards on Friday, December 9th, in preparation of the parent-teacher conferences the following week. Please take the time to review this important document with your child. Please ensure you return the envelope containing the report card, signed, to your classroom teacher. Due to a technical glitch in our student software, the attendance labels, on the student’s report cards, will not show any late arrivals for this term. As a result, the office will add a letter to each student’s report card if your child has more than 10 lates.
