Mid-Quarter report cards
Karl Morrin, Little Wolf High School principal, said he felt it was important to let parents know how their child is doing, since with a 90-minute block, a student receives a semester worth of work in a nine week quarter.
"I felt going the whole nine weeks without letting parents know what their son's or daughter's grades are, I thought it was important we send mid-quarter grades out," Morrin said.
Morrin said the mid-quarter grade is not an official grade. But since the block schedule is new, the mid-quarter grade is meant to let parents know how their son or daughter is doing, and give them time to correct anything that may need to be corrected.
The block schedule is going "fairly well," Morrin said. He said he has received positive comments from students about having time to work in class.
Cindy Kelm, district councelor, added, "The students that I've talked to about it have been very positive about it. The day goes quickly. They have more time to get their work done. They have fewer classes they have to concentrate on for the semester."
Morrin said he recently met with the teachers and is working on a couple concerns they have, including RTI time.
"With any change there are going to be tweaks along the way," Morrin said. "We're going to have to evaluate as we go on and try to make adjustments as best as possible."
