St. Casimir’s School Report Card Template

As discussed in our previous posts about our Report Cards initiative, today we’re sharing one of our private templates. If you like the way it looks, feel free to chat in any time to let us know. We can enable it and help set it up just the way you like!


At St. Casimir’s School Wells, Minnesota, teachers like to give lots of feedback to students through detailed grading criteria. The school uses a quarterly grading system, so their report card is a condensed two-column, four-term report card with plenty of space for lots of grading information. Let’s take a look at a sample!

The Blue Academic Template

As part of our initiative to share the awesome customreport cards at QuickSchools, today we’re sharing a public template. If it looks good to you, feel free to chat in – we’d love to enable it and help you set it up just the way you’d like!


The brand-new Blue Academic template is the first addition to our new line of restyled report cards. It’s a gorgeous single-term template that works for all sorts of situations and schools. Not only is it great for end-of-term report cards, but it’s also fantastic for mid-term progress reports as well. Take a look at the sample below to see how it might appear when it’s filled out.

Blue Academic

This template is both simple and flexible, as it supports marks, grades, comments, and overall comments. Designed by the QS Design Team, it’s meant to be easily readable, yet able to hold tons of information. Alongside the basic subject details, Academic Blue also supports several other features. These include…

  • Term GPA
  • Subject Credits
  • Grading Scale
  • Teacher, Parent, and Principal Signatures

If this template looks like it might work for your school, you can switch to it anytime! It’s the default template for all new Report Card sessions and can be selected from the “Change Template” menu in setup report cards. Of course, if you’d like any help enabling it or setting it up, please chat in and let us know!

The Dragon Academy in Toronto, Ontario has a strong sense of mission to encourage students to grow in both academic and self-knowledge. As part of this, their report card is structured to give holistic grading that shows Marks alongside Independent Work, Collaboration,  Organization, Responsibility, Initiative, and  Self-Regulation grades. It’s a cool report card that gives great information from all different angles

The Hudson College Report Card Template

As part of our initiative to share the awesome custom report cards at QuickSchools, today we’re sharing a private template. If it looks good to you, feel free to chat in – we’d love to enable it for you and help you set it up just the way you’d like!


At Hudson College in Toronto, ON students receive report cards that give detailed grades on both behavior and academics. It’s a very specific template, so we all worked together to build it with Hudson. When all was finished, Director Jeff Bavington had this to say about the process –

“The ability to customize our reports to suit our school’s personal needs was crucial for us at Hudson. The support team at Quick Schools – especially Azroy and Rick – were tremendously responsive and helpful in designing, testing, and implementing our reports. The result of our new report system is that it’s simultaneously more simple and efficient, yet also much more detailed and personalized for each student – and we’re only getting started! We are very pleased with the results. I highly recommend Quick Schools to any school looking for great features, flexibility, and support for their SIS needs”

Of course, special thanks to Director Bavington and all our friends at Hudson College! It was a pleasure to work Report Cards with you too!

Since it’s such a fantastic and detailed report card, we are all certain that it may be of some help to other schools. Without further ado, here’s a look at a sample Hudson College report card.

One of our schools, Lake Michigan Academy in Grand Rapids, MI, USA uses one of our public templates – Classic White – to build awesome progress reports every week.

Weekly Link Round-up #1: Magnets, Horses, and Star Wars!

Hi, everyone! My name is Charmaine Ng, and I’m the Community Advocate for QuickSchools. I’ve been hopping around educational forums and blogs, trying to keep up with all the cool stuff you guys are doing. It’s easy to be overloaded by information, so we thought we would start a weekly link round-up of fascinating articles and resources to save everyone some time. I hope these round-ups will be useful to you, and please let us know if you use any of the ideas in your classroom or if you have links to share – we’re all ears! Enjoy, and have a great weekend!

Are littleBits the 21st Century Lego Blocks? (by Erin Klein)

littleBits are the next hot thing to get your students thinking deeper about the design process that goes into creating everyday objects. Each color-coded “bit” snaps together with tiny magnets and has a different function, from dimmer and pulse to LED and vibration, creating a tiny circuit board. Although the bits aren’t cheap (the starter kit retails at $89), the idea certainly gives you food for thought. What if your student turned out to be a budding engineer?

Celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (by Allison Tran)

May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. So to encourage diversity in our literature and curriculum, I thought I would share this great booklist from Allison, a teen services librarian who wrote this guest blog for the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). The titles are both realistic and dramatic and work to offset Asian stereotypes. I actually finished reading American Born Chinese (shown here) earlier this week, and it is perfect for both middle and high school discussions. The graphic novel grapples with the topic of being discriminated against in school due to your ethnicity, but it also includes common rituals of growing up, like asking a girl out for the first time and fighting among best friends.

Derby Days! Horses! (by Dabbling Amy)

Isn’t this labeling activity just adorable? The Kentucky Derby is this Saturday, May 5, so this post is a little too late to capture the timeliness of the event. But you can use Amy’s unit anytime, really, because who doesn’t like horses? The activity is designed for first graders and pushes students to flex their research and artistic skills.
