Beginning with the first report card, parents will now be able to see how well their child is reading, based on the Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System. All students in grades K-8 are assessed three times per year, and teachers use this information to plan instruction. Be sure and look for the Independent Reading Level letter on the report card!
Students in grades 1-5 will be looking at new Report Cards this marking period. The new report cards have been revised to offer more information about a student's progress, including the current reading level. Kindergarten students will also get a revised Report Card, but not until 2nd Marking Period.
