Report Card

Archer Elementary uses their own report card to provide parents with the most updated and helpful information about student progress.  Below is the schedule for reporting.

We have created a brief video for parents and guardians to explain the information that is contained on the Report Card.

Hello parents and guardians!  Archer Elementary is committed to providing you with the most helpful and up-to-date information about your child’s performance in school.  Toward that end, we have created our own report card that we will be providing to you five times a year.  You will receive this report card instead of the traditional report card that you might be used to from previous years.

You will receive this report card from your child’s teacher at Parent Teacher conferences and then 4 more times throughout the year.

Here are a few of the most important aspects of the Report Card.

Under “Reading” you can find one of the most important pieces of information: your student’s reading level. We use letters, A-Z, to show the level of books students should be able to read on their own. Students should be bringing books home on this level every night, along with a few books a level higher and a level lower to practice with. 

In these orange boxes, “Goal” is what level the student should be striving for.  “Growth” shows their progress so far. By the end of the year, all student should make at least 1 year’s growth, and hopefully more!

Below that are reading tips, selected by your child’s teacher specifically to help them move up to the next level. Please practice the identified skills with your student when you read with them every night, and ask the teacher if you have any questions!

Below that are other grades: Writing, Social Studies, and Science are scores given based on teacher rubrics for each unit.  If the teacher has not completed a unit, you may not have this section on your report card – don’t worry, you’ll see it next time!

ESL is a score given only to students identified as students in need of extra language support. The score is a Listening and Speaking score given by the ESL service provider, Ms. Ewool. Please contact her if you have any questions. If you don’t see this section on your child’s report card, then they are not identified as an English Language Learner. 

You will notice there are two different sections for Math. The grades for both are based on the Topic tests that students take after completing the unit. However, the “Math Strands” section shows you how well they performed on different types of questions, so that you can work with them on their problem areas.  Here, Math Tests gives you their score on each topic test. When students begin a new topic with their teacher, they should be bringing home a Home-School connection page that looks like this: 

Ask your students about it and use this page to review concepts both before the test, and for previous Topics that you see your student scored poorly on.

ECLAS is an assessment of a variety of skills needed to develop reading literacy in Kindergarten and First Grade, such as Rhyme Recognition, identifying Initial Consonant Sounds, and recognizing Alphabet letters and Sounds.  A colored box shows that your student mastered that skill, a white box means that they are still working.  The color of the box shows how difficult that skill is.

Below this you will find grades from all of the special teachers your child sees. There is a general news update from the classroom teacher, and then below that are specific comments for your student that the teacher has provided.  Here are some websites that the school pays for, that students can use at home or at the library, along with their unique User Name and Password.

Please contact Mr. Racic, or your child’s teacher, if you have any questions!
