Principal's Weekly Message - January 16, 2018

Reported by david_worst@ipsd.org on 1/16/18

Hello Spring Brook Parents,



Report Cards

It's report card time! Second quarter report cards are available online on Friday, January 19 at 4:00 p.m. This is a great time to review your child's progress, celebrate successes and talk about goals for the future.



District 204 provides elementary report cards through eSchoolPlus Home Access Center. Beginning January 19 at 4:00 p.m., you may view your child's elementary school report card by clicking here. If you need assistance with logging in or access to the system, please call the main office. This is the same method that was used last year for report cards. I have attached report card grading information. This is also available through Home Access Center.

Parents have the ability to print a report card directly from the Home Access Center. In the upper right corner of the Report Card screen is a PRINT button. This will allow the parents to print an exact copy of the report card that is created in the office. Please visit this link for Directions.



Throughout the year, Spring Brook teachers continuously communicate with students and parents about progress and growth. District 204 Elementary School report cards will include teacher comments during second quarter. As always, our doors are open to you. Please contact your child's teacher with any questions or concerns at report card time and throughout the school year.



What is #FutureReady204?

Community members are invited to attend the next Engage 204 session on January 29 from 7 to 9 pm at Still Middle School, 787 Meadowridge Drive, Aurora. This session will focus on "What is #FutureReady204?" Experts have stated that the majority of students entering elementary school today will be working in jobs that have not been created yet, using tools that have not been invented yet, solving problems that have not been thought of yet. During this interactive session, administrators will share how education is changing to help students develop life and work skills that will be needed in the future.



Engage 204 is a collaborative process between the community and District 204. Key to the success of this process is the collaboration and discussion between participants. District residents who attend will have the unique opportunity to share ideas and discuss topics in small groups in order to provide feedback to the Board of Education. Findings and recommendations will be presented to the Board of Education by July 2018. All District 204 residents are invited to participate in Engage 204.



RSVP is appreciated, but not required at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Engage204RSVP.
