I think report cards say a lot about a student. For instance if a student’s report cards shows that they consistently receive A’s they are probably very dedicated to school and earning good grades. If a student is consistently failing then you can see the student doesn’t put time and effort into their grades.
Sometimes in classes people do extra things or learn about something that doesn’t count towards a grade. This happened to me in Cyber English this year. In the beginning of the year I learned how to set up and use a blog. This wasn’t a grade but it was very helpful to me.
I think that grades are important and show a lot about a student. It also shows how responsible an individual is. So all students should work hard and be responsible when it comes to grades.
