Happy New Year!

I hope that you have had a restful and relaxing break.

Instead of the traditional DoE report card that is used in most NYC public schools, TNS teachers prepare written reports that provide information about your child’s progress at school.  These narrative reports explain a child’s progress in far greater depth and detail than do traditional reports.  This year’s narrative reports will be very different from years past because we don’t know children in the same ways as we know them when we are with them in the classroom full-time.  Grade teams have agreed on the sections of focus (math, reading, writing, social studies/ABAR, etc.) and for each section, there is a check-list followed by a brief narrative that captures one or two challenges and highlights for each child.  Grade teams have adapted sections in ways that make sense developmentally but address each child’s engagement in small and large group meetings, their comfort with technology, and work habits.  Narrative reports will go home the week of February 1st.  

Please let me know if you have any questions about narrative reports this year.

Welcome Back,
