Elementary Report Card

Understanding the Elementary Report Card

Sharing information with parents/guardians is an important part of student learning. When parents know how their children are doing in school, they have even more opportunities to support their success.

There will be three report cards for elementary students.

1.    Progress Report Card – November
2.    Provincial Report Card – February
3.    Provincial Report Card – June

The progress report card in November is designed to show a student’s development of the learning skills and work habits during the fall of the school year, as well as the student’s general progress in working towards the achievement of the curriculum expectations in all subjects. As part of the progress report card, you will be invited to a parent-teacher conference to receive an update on how your child is doing in school. This assessment for learning will provide feedback on your child’s progress leading up to the provincial report card.

The provincial report card in February will provide an evaluation of your child’s learning from September to January as well as the development of learning skills and work habits during that period. A parent-teacher conference may take place at the parent’s request or the teacher’s request. This is another opportunity for feedback.

The final provincial report card in June will provide an evaluation of your child’s learning from February to June as well as the development of learning skills and work habits during that period.

All schools in Ontario, including Rainbow Schools, are using a report card developed by the Ministry of Education. Parents/guardians will be able to follow their child’s progress regardless of which school they attend.

For more information about report cards, please contact your child’s teacher or principal.
