This article walks through completing a Grade Submission Form and Checklist for 6th - 8th grade students. Grade portfolios should be completed at the end of every semester for students in grades 9th - 12th and submitted to [email protected] for 9th - 11th grade students or [email protected] for 12th grade students at the end of every semester or at the end of your student's school year. There is no deadline for submitting grade portfolios.
Note: Senior students should submit their Grade Portfolio as soon as possible to ensure they can be processed quickly for post-high school needs.
Please find all Grade Submission Forms and Checklists here: www.kolbe.org/welcomepacket Each form consists of a front page of the "Grade Submission Form" and the back page of the "Grade Portfolio Submission Checklist".
