Swifts return to Frank Wagner

December 4, 2014

Dear Frank Wagner Families,

On December 12th, your child will be bringing home the first report card of the year. A team of teachers, administrators and parents created this new Standards-based Report Card. The purpose of this new report card is to communicate how your child performs on grade level standards. The new report card is specific to each grade level.

The Standards-based Report Card was created to assess the Common Core State Standards and student learning behaviors. Prior to this report card we assessed students based on their progress at specific times of the year. This report card is meant to assess students on whether or not they have met the standard, and it is designed to communicate a student’s progress at reaching these standards at each point in the year. Some students will meet the grade level standard before the end of the year; others will need the entire year to demonstrate the level of rigor expected by these standards. In using this new report card at this time of year, students may receive 1’s and 2’s because they are developing proficiency toward grade level standards but are not yet there.

As educators, we too are learners. This is our first opportunity to use a standards-based report card in this manner. Revising our elementary report card to the new standards and revising our grading practices was necessary as we implement the Common Core State Standards. We understand you may have questions. There is a parent guide on the Monroe Public Schools portal that you are able to access. From the home page, click on Academics in the menu on the left. Click on Curriculum by Grade. Select the Report Card Guide for Parents at the grade level you need. Your voice will be helpful as we move forward with the implementation of this newly designed report card. We appreciate your continued partnership in supporting the success of your child.

Estimadas familias de Frank Wagner,

En el 12 de diciembre, su hijo traerá a la casa su primera boleta de calificaciones
del año. Un equipo de maestros, administradores, y padres crearon esta nueva
boleta de calificaciones estandarizada. El propósito de esta nueva cartilla es comunicarle en qué medida su hijo cumple con los normas de su nivel escolar.

Boleta de calificaciones estandarizada fue creada para medir los estándares de
«Common Core» del estado y el funcionamiento de aprendizaje de los alumnos.
Previo a esta cartilla nosotros medimos los alumnos según su progreso a puntos
específicos del año. Esta cartilla tiene la intención de evaluar los alumnos según
ellos han logrado alcanzar las normas, y se ha diseñado para comunicar el progreso de un alumno en alcanzar estas normas durante cada punto del año. Algunos alumnos lograrán la norma de su nivel escolar antes del fin del año; otros necesitarán el año entero para demostrar el nivel de rigor esperado por estas normas. Usando esta cartilla en este tiempo del año, alumnos recibirán 1’s y 2’s porque están aún desarrollando competencia de sus normas de nivel escolar, peroá no lo han logrado.

Como educadores, nosotros también somos estudiantes. Esta es nuestra primera oportunidad para usar estas boleta de calificaciones estandarizadas en esta forma. Actualizando nuestra boleta de calificaciones de primaria para cumplir con las normas nuevas y actualizando nuestras prácticas de dar notas era necesario mientras implementamos las normas del estado de «Common Core». Nosotros entendemos que quizás tendrá preguntas. Hay una guía para padres disponible en el portal de las escuelas públicas de Monroe que usted. Pueda acceder. Desde la página principal, seleccione «Academics» en el menú en la izquierda. Seleccione «Curriculum by Grade». Seleccione «Report Card Guide for Parents» por el nivel escolar que necesite. Su voz será una ayuda mientras progresamos con la implementación de esta cartilla nuevamente diseñado. Apreciamos su asociación continua en apoyar el éxito de su hijo.

Important Notice About Internet Safety

The best way to protect children from online harm is to keep computers in a family area of the home. Visibility allows parents to look over the students' shoulders without being too oppressive. Young children should have a parental chaperone whenever they are on the Internet. Two sites that discuss these issues and offer advice can be found at www.safekids.com and www.safeteens.com.

Hyperlinks to staff web sites (located on the Staff page) are provided for student and parent convenience, and all staff web sites are hosted by external Internet service providers. Monroe Public Schools assumes no liability for content contained on external service provider sites. Filtering software from one of the providers listed below is recommended to prevent unauthorized access to sites beyond the District's control.
