Student Assessment Updates coming on or before this Thursday.

Hello families.  Please watch for your child's assessment updates!  Teachers are communicating student learning in one of two ways.  Some staff are using Fresh Grade which is a digital way to communicate student learning.  A recent post will give a quick summary of progress that is supported by the many posts which outline learning achievements since September.  Some staff are communicating learning through traditional report cards and these will be arriving home between today and Thursday.  Please sign and return the envelopes to acknowledge receipt of this information.

In Saanich, as with other districts around the province, we use the BC Ministry Proficiency Scale to communicate students’ level of understanding within a given subject area. The Ministry has created the following visual to help explain the new language.

We hope you are able to discuss your child's learning journey with them and celebrate the growth so far while looking ahead to future goals.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to be in touch with the school.
