    Student Progress

    We, at Concordia Christian, believe that the partnership between parent and teacher is invaluable at assisting each student in achieving success. Our teachers are committed to this relationship and invested in each student’s success. Please feel free to contact your student’s teacher should you have any questions or concerns.

    Here is how we will keep you informed of your student’s progress:

    Graded Tests/Work

    Each week your student’s teacher will send home graded tests and work for your review.

    Gradelink

    In addition to graded work each parent will be able to access their student’s progress on Gradelink. Gradelink is a secure website where your student’s teacher weekly records grades for your review. As a parent you will have your student’s ID and password in order to review their progress. Click here on “Gradelink” for easy access.

    Google Classroom 4th – 8th Grade

    Teachers are utilizing this for assignments and grading.

    Google Classroom

    Mid-Terms/Report Cards

    Concordia Christian is based on a quarter system of grade reporting. Each quarter is approximately 8-9 weeks longs. At the middle of each of these terms (approximately 4 weeks into the term) you, as parents, will receive a Mid-Term Progress Report. These are more informal reports to keep you informed of your student’s progress up to that point in the quarter.

    The report card is the formal grades report at the end of each quarter and is what will become a part of your student’s cumulative file at the end of the school year.

    Parent/Teacher Conferences

    Each year you, as a parent, will have the opportunity to meet with your student’s teachers twice a year. Generally these will be scheduled in the end of 1st and 3rd quarters. You will be given the opportunity to let us know which times on the available days will best fit your schedule.

    Academic Testing

    Each year Concordia Christian students are involved in standardized testing. Private schools in California are not allowed to administer the same standardized tests that is used by the public schools. We will use the same academic testing as all of LCMS Christian schools (Lutheran Church Missouri Synod). These test scores assist Concordia Christian School in developing strategies to prepare our students for the next grade level, then to Jr./Sr. High School and eventually for the competitive nature of college acceptance.

    Honors

    Concordia Christian School is pleased to recognize the achievements of our students in the following areas:

    Academic

    Honor Roll

    We recognize our 4th through 8th grade students that achieve a 3.5 or better grade point average.

    National ELEMENTARY Honor Society

    We are proud to be one of the founding members for this honor society, it has been around for years in the Junior and Senior High levels and now at the Elementary level. We recognize 4th through 5th grade students who show 2 or more semesters of a 3.5 or better grade point average. But NEHS is more than that… an invitation to join involves evaluation in the following areas: Scholarship, Service, Responsibility and Leadership. Once a member your student will participate in service projects at school and in the community.

    NHS - National Honor Society and CJSF

    Middle School participates in these Honor Societies by inducting qualified candidates yearly.
