Spring Grove Elementary Are there any yearbooks / photos available from past years' students and teachers?

I attended this school, and I have nothing but shining opinions about it. The teachers always cared for us, there were programs for the gifted, etc. There were so many events that focused on us learning and having fun that it didn't feel at all like school but more an adventure every day.

They do not offer any extra classes for children who need help. Unwilling to go the extra mile. My son has been there three years and only one teacher was willing to work with him. They expect the parents to teach the children not the teachers. And there principal was caught with minors in a hotel room with drugs. Not a very good feeling to have as a parent with this school.

Both of my sons attend SGS and I think it is a very good school. The kids are engaged and learning, but they aren't bogged down with too much busywork...yet. My two are in 1st and 3rd and I was told it gets more intense in 4th grade. My youngest was behind a bit when he came into 1st grade, and the teachers picked right up on it and started him in a special reading program that really helped get him up to speed. All of the staff have had have been very involved in wanting to see my kids (and everyone' else's) succeed and helping them towards that goal. The PTO makes sure the kids aren't out there fundraising, instead we have fun fairs and a big dinner dance to raise funds. I love this school and while our taxes are high, I feel I am getting my money's worth.

The teachers at this school are wonderful. It is evident they have a strong desire to serve the children and the community. I am particularly impressed with the study of the rain forest my fourth grade child completed. Also, I enjoy that my child's 4th grade teacher sends home a study guide for the social studies test. It is a wonderful school!

The parent involvement at this school is great! The teachers are very concerned and caring. As far as academics, however, I'd have to say the district is a bit behind. Since I work in other schools I know this for sure. We have 4th graders that are doing addition and subtraction at the end of the 1st qtr. Get with it! They ended 3rd grade mult. & div. Let's stop the reviewing & push the educating! Also, the two elem. schools that feed the same middle school do not share a common curriculum. Okay folks, the merge is long past and books are being purchased. Get with it!

Our school is great and love our teachers! We re having budget problems and are headed for more cuts, but we are making the best of it. Our principal has given his 2 year retirement notice, which because of large raises for retiring, will take away much needed funds from our students, but we are glad to seem him go. Our superintendent and principal both need to go. Our superintendent has been very divisive for our school district. The superintendent and our principal live in another state and don t care about our financial situation. Our School Board doesn t seem to know what they are doing awarding expensive contracts, expensive fringe benefits, and giving 60 sick days to administrators because there wasn t money for large raises. We will have 4 new school board members in the spring and hopefully this will help the situation. We have the best PTO in Illinois!

This is the best elementary school imaginable. The PTO of this school is soooo involved. Every year they have a Dinner Dance for the parents with silent auctions and have rasied over 25k from just one of them. The teachers care so much about our children that prior to the school year the kids receive post cards from their new teacher telling them how much they are looking forward to having them in their class. How wonderful is that? I would recommend this school to any parent. Some of the extra programs they have are a gifted program, a storytelling program(free for kids by the pto),they put on a program for grandparents as well as the usual holiday etc. Anytime there is a concern in our community a letter gets sent home to the parents.
