Report Card Information

Dear Montclair Families:

On Friday, December 18th children in grades 1 through 5 will take home their first term report card. The report card for grades 1 through 5 have been revised and reformatted into the new standards based report cards and will also be available to parents using ASPEN. Because of the change in the report card, Quincy Public Schools feels it important that parents have an opportunity to preview the card before conferences to be held on January 5th.

If you are the parent of a kindergarten student, will receive your kindergartener’s report card at your conference, also to be held on January 5th. Because your conferences may be your first formal conversation with your child’s teacher regarding your son’s or daughter’s academic progress, giving the report cards out then will enable your child’s teacher to explain the card and show you your child’s areas of strength and challenge.

By Tuesday, December 15th you will receive a notice regarding your scheduled report card conference time. I am sure you will make every effort to attend your conference; as we all know children whose family is involved and expresses interest in their learning perform at higher levels.

I look forward to seeing you in January and hearing about how your child is progressing.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me.

Principal of Montclair

Dear Montclair Families,

I want to express my thanks to the children, teachers, support staff, parents, PTO, and community for another successful year at Montclair school. I feel that this year the students have made tremendous progress and grown so much academically and socially. It is satisfying to see the independence of our kindergarten students and first graders, the cooperation in our second and third grade students, the commitment to task of our fourth grade students, and the leadership and excitement of our fifth grade students as they approach middle school. I am very, very proud of the work our student completed and the many ways they have grown.

Your child was provided with two opportunities to continue working on their math and reading skills during the summer months. Again this year we are proud to offer the Read to Ride program sponsored by Representative Bruce Ayers. Additionally, we are proud to offer a new, online math program TenMarks.

I would to again like to express my gratitude for being allowed to work with your children. I feel privileged to have been entrusted with leading a fine school community and am grateful to all who work tirelessly to provide our students with an excellent education and wonderful learning opportunities. I look forward to next school year and the many things we can and will continue to accomplish!

I wish you all a wonderful, relaxing summer filled with family, friends, and a ton of sunshine!

Renée L. Malvesti,
