The Kindergarten Grading System

The Report of Academic Achievement is a summary of the progress of the child’s developmental growth physically, socially and academically.

The Report of Academic Achievement is tracked quarterly to ensure the child is succeeding in all subjects.

The scale for this level is:

N = Not Yet Evident

P = Progressing/Developing

A = Achieved N/A Not addressed.


Homework

Homework is compulsory for all students and can come in many forms. Aims of Homework:

• To consolidate work done in class

• To establish good work habits and a proper attitude to study

• To keep parents informed of the type of work being done in school

Books

MKS provides a complete list of required text books for each Kindergarten class level. The books may be purchased from our bookstore.


School Supplies

MKS Kindergarten Office will provide a complete list of required school supplies


Uniforms

MKS MS requires all students to dress daily in our designated school Uniform. Kindergarten students wear plain white shirts with light grey pants by boys and a dark green jumper for girls. For their safety, students should always wear proper shoes with socks or tights. For physical education classes, Kindergarten students wear a white t-shirt with our blue MKS emblem and blue sweat pants. Kindergarten students should also wear sport shoes when having their P.E. lesson.


Field Trips

Field trips provide young learners with opportunities to experience their curriculum outside the school environment. Students can only attend a field trip if the consent form has been signed by a parent and returned before the event. Cost of each field trip varies due to the activities being provided.


Birthday Parties

We hold our birthday parties on the last Thursday of each month for students who have a birthday in that month. Parents are encouraged to the birthday party meetings and help with the planning of their child’s event.


Special Events

Occasionally we will be holding Special Events in the school to help enhance the learning of our Kindergarten students. Some of these events include helping the community. We believe by helping others, we are promoting good morals and values in our students. We hope you will help your child take part in all of these events.


Communication

We encourage constant communication between the home and the school. There will be parent-teacher conferences scheduled throughout the year. As well, should your parent wish to communicate with a teacher or the Principal, please phone the school secretary to make an appointment as staff and Principals are not always readily available.
