Ms. Noell's Grading Policy

First graders are assessed in the areas of personal and social development, literacy, math, social studies, and science.  In lieu of grades, a narrative report is prepared every quarter in which a student's individual progress is communicated along with information regarding benchmarks, expectations, and topics of inquiry.  Student work samples, photographs, anecdotal records, and other data are collected throughout the year for assessment purposes.
