Dear Parents/Guardians,

Due to the nature of the language teaching in elementary school, magnet language teachers do not assign numerical grades. What appears on your child’s report card is the student’s conduct grade in their classes. In an effort to communicate your child’s progress in language classes, the magnet team has designed a foreign language proficiency rubric. Parents/Guardians will receive magnet report cards after completion of each night weeks. It is not necessary to return language report card to language teachers.


2nd grade students have been working on the following language skills:
