The QuickSchools Report Cards module has evolved tremendously over the years, thanks to feedback from our family of schools.

Seeing as schools are busy closing out the 2012/2013 school year, we’ve decided to extend our “Share Your QuickSchools Story” campaign. We’ll possibly announce winners in our next newsletter. If you haven’t read about it, check it out here! You could win one of 3 iPad Minis. What a cool device to run QuickSchools for the summer and the next school year.

Just a quick update: We’ve added an email notification for the Private Messaging. So whenever you receive a Private Message, you will also be notified via email. To turn off the notification, just open your Private Messages on QuickSchools, and click on the gears icon next to the “New Message” button:
