Elementary Assesments

I could use some good advise. This is my second year teaching Pre-K -4th
grade art. This district currently grades elementary students by giving
them a "S" or "U" (satisfactory or unsatisfactory) during the second and
fourth grading periods. Which is basically worthless/meaningless.
The administration is asking me to come up with some kind of
"grading card" to put into the students grading envelopes each quarter.
They are thinking of some kind of a check list as to what the student
can or cannot do.
Personally I don't believe in giving students grades in any subject
ESPECIALLY ART! I fault this my entire first year of teaching, but now
all the other Elementary specialty area teachers (Music & Gym) giving in
I'm also being forced to. With 500+ students every week, I'm just afraid
that these "art grade card" that the administrators would like me to do
will just end up being time consuming and meaningless.
Would anyone happen to be using some kind "grade card / assessment
format" for the elementary art student? I could really use your advise
as soon as possible before the board office here decides for me!
Any advise on this topic would be greatly appreciated!
