Semester 1 Grades and Comments

Dear Parents, Guardians, and students,

Semester 1 and Quarter 2 grades and comments are ready for viewing via your PowerSchool account.  

PowerSchool is an incredible tool that will increase the effectiveness of feedback about student learning.  We strongly believe that student progress is best communicated through regular feedback rather than only at reporting dates, however at the end of each quarter you will receive a notice like this to confirm that grades and comments for the term are complete.  This means that teachers and school administration have reviewed this ‘snap shot’ of students’ progress and valuable feedback to support learning has been provided through the comment feature. If you have any questions about a current grade or student progress in a course, please contact the classroom teacher.

You can view grades and comments either on the PowerSchool mobile application or on the website portal.  Ensure that you are viewing Semester 1 to see the current grade.  Select the course to view teachers’ comments.  When you expand any grade you will also see a detailed list of assignments.  For highschool courses that have concluded, grades will be uploaded to the student’s Alberta Education file and credits will be awarded.  

We are happy to help students and families learn how to use PowerSchool, please contact the office with any questions you may have.  This includes if you need to set up your account.  All student accounts are set up automatically, where their 5-digit student number is their username and their password is the same as the one used to log into their WRPS accounts. 

Additional information is also available on the PowerSchool Mobile Application and web portal, for example our Daily Bulletin (school announcements) and students' new courses for semester 2 and quarter 3.  You can change the term (semester or quarter) in by selecting the drop down menu on the overview or home screen on PowerSchool.

Please contact the office to set up an appointment where we can support you in accessing your PowerSchool account and/or show you the page we recommend to print if you require a hard copy of students’ progress. We can also support students in printing this for their parents/guardians. 

Please also see the “Frequently Asked Questions” as it may include the quick answers you are looking for. If not, please reach out to with your questions. 

Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership in learning,


Nicole Townsend
