Dear Parents/Guardians,              


We provide regular updates to you about your student’s academic progress by sending home a Report Card. Once a year we provide you with updates on our school’s achievements through the North Carolina School Report Card.

 

This Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality. There also is information about how our school measured against federal Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) targets and the number of suspensions and expulsions in our school. Report data is available for our school district and for the state’s education system as a whole.

 

You will be receiving a summary of our Report Card called the Report Card Snapshot. Our school’s full Report Card can be found on the NC School Report Cards’ website at http://www.ncreportcards.org. Our school district’s Report Card is available on the Report Card website, also. School Report Cards are provided for regular public schools, charter schools and alternative schools that were open during the 2010-2011 school year.

 

The numbers only tell part of the story. At our school we are proud of the following special activities that are underway such as:


· Assessment Wall Conversations

· Business sponsors such as Home Depot, Domino’s, Sonic, Various Food Labels for Education

· Common Core Implementation

· Data Driven Dialogue

· Lead Teacher

· National Board Certified Teachers

· Parent Resource Center

· Parent University Parent Nights

· Positive Behavior Intervention Support

· Professional Book Studies

· PTO Programs

· Race to the Top Technology

· Reading and Math Specialists

· Research based curriculum

· Response to Intervention

· Summative and Formative Assessments

· Teachers with graduate degrees

· Writing across all areas of the curriculum

· 21st Century Skills


 


State and local education leaders are committed to providing parents with more information about schools. Well-informed parents who participate in their children’s education and school enhance the learning environment for students and educators alike. In addition, the federal No Child Left Behind Act requires schools to issue Report Cards.

 

At Fair Grove Elementary School your involvement is very important to the success of our school! I encourage you to review our Report Card carefully, then feel free to contact me directly to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding the Report Card. I also welcome your feedback regarding other interests you have in our school.

 

Thank you for allowing me to share this Report Card with you and thank you for supporting our efforts to provide your child with a high-quality education.

 

Sincerely,

Audrey Wagner Natasha Bumgarner
