Part with progress reports

Every time progress reports are passed out there are mixed emotions among students and teachers.

A good handful of students at Greenbrier struggle with their grades. Some panic and wonder how they can improve their grades after receiving a progress report, while some don’t even know why progress reports are still passed out.

For students struggling with grades, the best way to recover from a bad progress report is to study more in order to do well on upcoming tests and classwork, as Kamilla Lovett states that she will “be whipped if I have a B.” Using flashing cards may help a bit, as well as taking notes during class to avoid forgetting lessons. Some may even give tutoring a try.

But why are progress reports still passed out? Most students like having them passed out every term, such as Zacharie Soucie, who is “too lazy to go online” to check on his grades.

A more modest person like freshman Abby Sayler told me “some students don’t have the ability to check their grades online,” an argument against why progress reports should still get handed out physically to students at Greenbrier.

As for individuals who don’t like progress reports, they feel as they are unnecessary. Mrs.Chizmar said “all the information is online,” that administration doesn’t need printed reports.

Progress reports or not, it is important to be aware of your grades and improve you GPA. Do you think progress reports should still be distributed? Leave a comment.
