WMS Friday Forecast
January 17, 2020 - Week 20
We are two weeks into our new quarter. As you work with your child, checking Home Access Center (HAC) every two weeks, ask your child the following:
- How is your effort impacting your learning?
- Are your effort and your grades matching right now?
- What is your goal for this quarter?
- (If needed) How can you improve your effort?
- How can I help you?
The learning our kids do in middle school is important as they build skills for high school and beyond. If they don't do the work now, high school becomes exponentially more challenging. While grades may seem important, one of the real indicators for ongoing success is effort. If I work hard, the chances of success are higher!
Enjoy your weekend!
For 6th and 7th Grade Parents- Spanish for Heritage Speakers:
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Reminder: Our expectation for school is that all cell phones and smartwatches are to be off and away in your student's locker during the school day.
Please talk with your student about keeping their speakers at home and take a few minutes to remind them of the cell phone/smartwatch expectation. Thank you for your help in this matter.

Middle School Transfer Requests
Families who wish to submit Middle School Transfer requests may do so beginning February 3. The request form will be available on the District 303 website through February 28. Families must complete a separate form for each student they want transferred. Requests are granted based on space available so siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be communicated to families before spring break.
Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.
Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance are responsible for their own transportation.
Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle school attended.

We Want Your Feedback
District 303 participates in the annual Illinois 5Essentials Survey that collects feedback from our students, teachers, and parents. Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will enable you to share your thoughts on important elements of school effectiveness. All responses are confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.
The Parent Survey is currently open and will remain so through February 14, 2020.
To take the survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the
appropriate survey. Make sure you enter Kane County in the box for county even if
your home or your child’s school is in DuPage County. This will allow you to correctly
select your child’s school.
