  • Parent resource survey - Due by October 1st
  • Wild Rose Spirit Week - September 28th - October 2nd
  • Virtual Scholastic Book Fair - September 23rd - October 4th
  • Sign-up for Parent Conferences on Pick-a-Time

Hopefully this will continue to help everyone stay informed.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Parent Teacher Conferences

Virtual Conferences will be held:

Thursday, October 8th from 8:00 am - 8:00 pm

Friday, October 9th from 8:00 am -12:00pm

While all conferences will be virtual, parents will sign-up using Pick-A-Time.

Directions for accessing Pick-A-Time can be found https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KzeGzfrMvK4crC2YBeCKqur9L8uAlzRM/view.

This year, D303 elementary schools are shifting from conferences focused on progress review to a focus on setting meaningful goals. Teachers will be reviewing student work and student assessment data with your child to determine areas of strengths and areas of improvement. Goals will then be set and ideas to reach those goals will be shared with you at your child’s conferences. The role of the teacher, the student and the guardian in reaching those goals will be discussed. In order for you to prepare for these conferences, please reflect on this school year so far. What has been a success for your child? What has been a challenge? How can you support your child with reaching his or her goals?

The conferences will conclude with time for questions.

If you are interested in conferencing with a specials teacher, please reach out to them directly via email. You can find their contact information below.

Public Library Information

Do you have a library card for the St. Charles Public Library? If not, you are eligible for one of the following:

Resident Card

  • If you live in the Public Library boundaries you are paying taxes that allow you to have a Resident Library Card. This card has more functionality than the Student card and can be used by the family.

  • Call the Public Library to activate your card. You will be issued a temporary card.
    You will need to visit the Public Library with your proof of residency in the future. Until that time, a temporary card will be mailed to your home.

  • You may call:
    630.584.0076 or 630.584.9390 to begin the process

Student Card

  • All Wild Rose students are eligible for a Public Library card. This card will only be available to the student. Family members will not be able to use this card.

  • Call the Public Library to activate your card. All information can be taken over the phone. No in-person visit is necessary.

  • You may call:
    630.584.0076 or 630.584.9390 to begin the process

Call Today to start the process of getting that St. Charles Public Library Card and checking out books.

Kindergarten Lunch Option

D303 is now offering lunch for our kindergartners. If your kindergartner would like to order lunch to take home they notify their teacher and it will be delivered to them before they leave school. Remote students also always have the option of ordering lunch with specific pick-up times and locations.
