This is a page that I included with progress reports. Parents had a lot of questions with our reporting system, and it was a nice uniform letter to explain why many grades are "not yet taught". It also gives parents a quick glance of what we will be working on for the rest of the year.
My favorite part is the second page. For years, I have sent home progress reports and have heard nothing back from parents. Then final reports come home, and parents question the final grades. This is a "have to" report from parents that students MUST bring back. Most parents just send it back with a signature, but a least I know they have seen their child's report.
This is the report that I send home along with the student's progress report. It is in Word form, so please feel free to edit it as you wish. If you need me to send you a PDF version, just send me a message and I can send it to you.
To print, I would print the pages double sided so that parents could just send back the last page and keep the first 2 pages for reference. (The examples are simple screen shots of the page as the file was too large to attach a better view.)
This can be easily edited to fit any grade level.
I can also see how this can be used for conferences too!
