• Academics


    A homework assignment may be made for unfinished work or an extension of classroom studies. All assignments are made for practice, extension, or review. If a child is having difficulty with assignments or spending long periods of time on them, please contact the teacher to discuss the situation.  

    Progress Reports, Report Cards

    Grades reflecting a student’s progress are distributed through report cards every 9 weeks. These grades are a reflection of a child’s mastery of essential elements in the various subjects.

     Progress notices are provided to all students in the middle of the six-week grading period. It is hoped that this progress report will provide the incentive for a student to improve in any problem areas before the official grades are placed on the report card.

    Parents are allowed access to Star Portal™ in order to view grades and attendance. Please visit www.risd.org for directions to creating an RPortal account for access to Star Portal™.

    Parent Conferences

    Conferences may be arranged by calling the teacher’s phone or by sending a note or e-mail to the teacher. Teachers will make every attempt to work with parents’ schedules.

    Tuesday Folders

    Students will bring home various types of information each Tuesday in an envelope which is provided by the school. Parents should read this information, sign anything which requires a timely response, and sign the envelope by the appropriate date so that the student can return the envelope on Wednesday morning.
