Progress Reports / Thursday Take-Home Folders
The Fairfax County Public Schools policy requires reporting on pupil progress every nine weeks. Elementary Progress Reports are sent home approximately two weeks after the end of each marking period (four times per year). The purpose of the Progress Report is to communicate student progress in grade level expectations to help the parent or pupil identify the pupil’s strengths and weaknesses.
The reporting for kindergarten will consist of scheduled parent conferences at the end of the first nine weeks and Progress Reports for the second, third, and fourth grading periods.
Thursday Take-Home Folders
Good communication between home and school is vital to a successful school experience for each child. Thursday is the designated take-home day for NSES when announcements, newsletters, menus, student folders, progress reports, and any handouts will be sent to parents. This does not preclude sending communications home on other days if it becomes necessary.
