Vedder Elementary is a special learning community where students, staff and parents are engaged in meaningful learning each day. Vedder's mission is to be a community that inspires strong character and powerful thinking. Our goal is, "How will a school wide focus on powerful thinking foster literacy, numeracy and social responsibility?"
Report Card Update
Parents/Guardians usually receive a report card in June that summarizes their child’s progress during the year. This year we are unable to produce the usual progress reports because of the teachers’ strike. In order to attain final letter grades for students in grades 10, 11 and 12 Chilliwack School District followed the Labour Relations Board Essential Services Orders (http://www.bcpsea.bc.ca).
Reports have been distributed as follows:
Students in grades K-9 will not receive a report card until the current labour dispute is settled. In the interim, schools issued a letter via mail for each student which provides an end-of-year statement that includes information about their promotion for the coming year. In the fall, programs of interventions and supports will be established for students whose information indicates that they are at academic risk.
Enquiries about student marks may be brought forward to teachers upon their return to work.
We would like to thank our parents/guardians and community for their patience during these difficult times.
