    Grading

    At the beginning of the year, it is hard to tell exactly how your child is doing by looking at your child's papers.  Much of the work completed cooperatively in class.  As the year progresses, your child will learn how to work independently.
    The Kindergarten Progress Report (Report Card) uses the following markings instead of letter grades and percentages.

    S- Satisfactory
    X- Still working at school, needs reinforcement at home
