At the Halton Catholic District School Board, school communities exist to foster and exemplify Catholic values. Educational programs, facilitated in the context of faith, promote the intellectual, physical, social and spiritual development of students.
The Elementary Progress Report Card for students in Grades 1−8 is designed to “show a student’s development of the learning skills and work habits during the fall of the school year, as well as a student’s general progress in working towards the achievement of the curriculum expectations in all subjects.” (Growing Success Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting in Ontario Schools, First Edition, Covering Grades 1–12, 2010, p. 50)
The progress report cards are intended to become a central part of rich discussions with students and their parents in the context of proactive interviews or conferences that will help to establish a positive tone for the remainder of the school year. In this way, students and parents can gain a better understanding of students’ learning skills and work habits, and students’ learning goals can be clarified and understood by all. Such communication will help establish a culture of learning and improve students’ opportunities for achieving success. (Growing Success, p. 66)
