My Student Progress Information and Report Cards
On Friday December 4 we ended our first trimester of the 2015-2016 school year. Teachers are in the process of finalizing their grades and report cards. I am attaching directions for how to access the My Students Progress system. These directions were also sent out a few weeks ago, but I wanted to resend them. Please become comfortable with the system by logging in and looking around.
Please note that you will not be able to review your child/children's report cards until we make them available. The timeline for viewing report cards will open on December 15th and close on December 21st. During that time you can view and print them. Once it closes, you will not have access to them until they come out again at the end of the 2nd trimester.
I hope that this information is helpful. Please contact the office if your questions can not be answered by the document below.
Go to our school website, www.stjpschool.org
On the left hand side, scroll down to ‘Quick Links” and click on the ‘Gradebook’ link.
You will be directed to the sign in page of My Students Progress, (MSP).
If you have never logged into MSP, input your email address that you provided to the school, and then click on ‘Forget your Password?’ Please note, the school does not have your passwords.
You will be asked to “Enter your email address”.
You will be asked to check your email for a link and then return to the MSP screen to log in.
The email will contain the password that either you chose or was given to you by MSP.
Once you have the password, go back to the MSP screen and click on the ‘here’ so the log in screen will appear.
Enter your email and password.
If this is your first time logging into MSP, you will be asked to change your password.
Once in MSP, you can view the Report Card, (when available), by going to the Academics tab.
Click on the ‘light bulb’ in the upper right hand corner for a list of topics and training.
Home and School
We would like to also thank you for doing the hot chocolate for us at our Christmas Candlelight last night. It was fabulous and added the perfect touch to our evening!
Home and School will be sending out information in the very near future about an StJP Cookbook. We are very excited about this. To kick start the idea, they had the students at StJP come up with a title for the book. Out of all the entries, the winning title was "StJP's Heavenly Delights" which was submitted by the 7th grade! Our students will also be doing the artwork for the inside of the book as well. Be on the look out for more information soon.
