Third grade is the first year that students receive letter grades. All Grades are based on grade level expectations for third grade. As graded assignments come home this year, you will see a rubric score of 1 – 4. This rubric is posted in our classroom. It is used daily by myself and the students. The goal is for the children to have a strong understanding of what each score means.
Exceeds grade-level expectations.
Meets grade-level expectations.
Partially meets grade-level expectations
Does not meet grade-level expectations

Parents can log onto Power School to see their child's grades. Log-in information is available in the front office.
Wednesday Work Folders
Each Wednesday your child will bring home a folder containing work that they completed during the previous week. We ask parents to review these papers with their child to see how they are doing, and where they may need additional practice. Your signature on the cover sheet indicates that you have seen your student's work and gone over it with them. Please note that there will be some assignments that do not come home that go into a student portfolio that is kept at school. These will be reviewed during conferences.
A conference will be held at the beginning of the school year and at the end of the school year. Other conferences may be requested (by the teacher or yourself) to discuss your child’s progress at any time throughout the year. In school phone conferences can be conducted after 2:45 PM. Messages can also be left in the office (654-1800).
