MIDTERM REPORT CARDS Your son/daughter will be brining home their midterm report card on Thursday November 13th. The purpose of the report card is to provide information about your child’s achievement of the subject curriculum expectations and learning skills to date. We ask that parents have a discussion with their child about his/her achievement, learning skills and possible next steps for improvement. These conversations are critical in helping students learn decision-making skills, and draw the connections between actions and results. For example, discuss with your son/daughter how he/she uses the resources available to him/ her at SWMSS. These resources include: extra help, guidance counselors, special education, student success, coaches and conversations with classroom teachers about goal setting and scheduling. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the school. Report Card Response Forms should be reviewed, signed and returned to your child’s homeroom teacher by November 24th.
