So that we might identify specific areas of strengths and/or weaknesses, Tenafly elementary students are assessed using standards-based report cards. The standards-based report card is correlated to rubrics that specify expectations for each grade level and subject area. The rubrics are aligned with New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and Common Core Standards, linked to curricula in our elementary school programs.
The standards-based report cards help to provide greater consistency in curricular expectations from year to year and strengthen collaboration between you and your child’s teacher in supporting his or her success. Samples of the report cards and rubrics are available by clicking the link to the left. I encourage you to review these in advance of your parent-teacher conferences.
Please let your child’s principal or me know of any questions you might have. I wish you and your child a productive and successful school year.
