As I have mentioned in previous eLedgers, St. Mary’s Spring Academy is excited to introduce Standards Based Grading in grades kindergarten through third grade for the 2021-22 school year. Standards Based Grading is a best practice initiative the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is leading all of its schools towards implementing in the coming school year.
Today is the fifth installment of our six session video series. Please click here to further unpack Standards Based Grading. The video unpacks the proficiency levels of one, two, three and four. The SMSA timeline of our rollout is reintroduced as well.
The objective of the video series is to educate parents in short videos to unpack Standard Based Grading. The series intends to deliver an education and mind-shift to understand Standards Based Grading, why Standards Based Grading is best practice, and how Standards Based Grading functions with the parent and teacher supporting the student’s journey.
Thank you for your partnership!
Grades three through eight have completed Forward testing this week. Thank you for partnering with us and having your child attend school during Forward testing. It made an enormous impact.
Eighth grade graduation
Eighth grade graduation will be held on Thursday, May 20, 2021 at Holy Family in the evening. Please look for more details to come in the near future.
