Progress Reports and Student Led Conferences

Progress Report Cards will be sent home at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 23rd.  

We look forward to seeing parents and guardians at Watson P.S.  for Student Led Conferences on the evening of Thursday, November 24th and morning of Friday, November 25th.  Conferences will be arranged through the homeroom teachers.  Please ensure you have completed the conference request form sent home today and send it back to the school by Thursday, November 10th.  You will receive a confirmation slip with your child’s Student Led Conference time by Thursday, November 17th.

The Elementary Progress Report Cards are designed to show a student’s development of the learning skills and work habits during the fall of the school year, as well as a student’s general progress in working towards the achievement of the curriculum expectations in all subjects. The Progress Report Cards are intended to become a central part of rich discussions with students and their parents in the context of a variety of communications that will help to establish a positive tone for the remainder of the school year.

The Elementary Progress Report Card focuses on progress towards expectations, during a cycle of learning rather than achievement of expectations at the end of a learning cycle.

Student-Led conferences provide the forum for positive learning conversations between the students and their parents and guardians.  Celebrating a successful start to the school year and setting goals for future learning are important steps for students who are becoming more responsible for their own learning.   Learning skills are located on the first page of the progress report as they are the skills most needed towards improved academic success.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school office or your child’s teacher with any inquiries or comments.
