Progress and Performance
Accountability for Academic Achievement
It is our goal to communicate frequently regarding the progress your child is making at school. Progress reports will be sent home with your child every three weeks. Report cards are sent at the end of each nine-week grading period. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s progress in school, please contact your child’s teacher. See Board Policy #3700-Accountability for Academic Achievement in the back of the student handbook.Homework
The staff at Princeville Montessori believes that homework should support learning, foster independence, and enrich the child's experience through school. Assignments will be designed to be meaningful and to complement the many valuable family experiences that aid in the child’s development. Emphasis will be placed expectations that the child will be reading or be read to on a daily basis. Additional assignments will be provided giving appropriate support for the lessons and learning presented in the classroom. The amount of homework will vary according to the child’s age and needs.Communication
Good communication between parents and teachers is extremely important. The teacher will be a parent’s first contact should questions or concerns arise. Parent Teacher Conferences are required and scheduled throughout the year. Teachers will provide updates on classroom activities using various means.Tracking Your Child's Progress and Performance
While it is traditional for parents to check school papers for a child’s progress and performance in school, children in our primary and junior elementary classes do not always come home with their learning experiences recorded on papers. Even the written work that is done by children who have developed writing skills needs interpretation by teachers since the purpose or activity is not necessarily evident from the paper. Ongoing parent training sessions will be planned to help present a clear and complete picture of the Montessori program.
