Third Grade Reading Law
In an effort to boost reading achievement, Michigan lawmakers passed Public Act 306 in October 2016. To help more students be proficient by the end of 3rd grade, the law requires extra support for K-3 students who are not at grade level in reading. The law also states that a child may be retained in 3rd grade if he is one or more grade levels behind in reading at the end of 3rd grade. To read more about this law and learn how it might affect your child, please read the Parent's Read-At-Home-Plan for Student Success (PDF). Additional resources are also available online
MiBLSi stands for " Michigan's Learning and Behavior Support Initiative". Through this State of Michigan grant, all Parchment elementary schools were given resources and professional training to support our philosophies of individualized reading interventions and Positive Behavior Support.

Report cards are completed three (3) times during the school year. Report cards are just one of the ways we keep parents informed of their child's progress. Parents are encouraged to contact their child's teacher if there are any questions or if further information is needed.
