Sandburg parents also question quality of 3rd quarter report cards: "What a waste"

I continue to receive messages from elementary school parents about the lack of information on the 3rd quarter report cards regarding the academic achievement of their children.
Concern about quality of 3rd quarter report cards (cont)

Good afternoon,
A friend just passed on the article on the web about Crestwood and Elvejhem parents being upset about 3rd quarter report cards. Well, there are some at Sandburg as well.

What a waste of paper... 43 boxes on the report card and only 17 filled out with something other than an "N/A". Didn't anyone think about saving some money and just using one sheet of paper per child (instead of 4) if that was all that was going to be reported?
At least I received comments from the Sage teacher even though I know my daughter is doing well. I know someone at Kennedy who had no comments at all on his daughters' report cards.
If the art, music, gym and Reach teachers are only going to write up an article about what each grade has been doing, why not just publish them in the school newsletters?
This is the stuff that really irks us parents, and especially when it causes an early release day. This is the stuff we remember when it's time to vote.

Thank you for your time.
