Principal's Weekly Message - April 2, 2018

Reported by on 4/2/18

Hello Spring Brook Parents,

Report Cards

It's report card time! Third quarter report cards are available online on Friday, April 6 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 April 6 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 only. 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.
