Please help our school improve!
Taking a few minutes to fill out this survey really is a great way to help Anderson continue to improve. The information your feedback provides helps our Anderson Leadership Team focus on areas and specific action steps we can take to get better. It also helps us celebrate the many aspects of our school that are awesome! If you have read this far, you are committed! Next step, click the link and take the survey! We need at least 20% of our parents to fill it out.
Vision and Hearing Screening scheduled for February
Each year students receiving special education, those new to the State of Illinois schools, and those in mandated grades have vision and hearing screening performed in school by certified vision/hearing technicians. Anderson is scheduled for this routine screening during the week of 2/27/23 and 3/6/23. Hearing screening is mandated for elementary students in kindergarten, first, second and third grades. Vision is mandated for kindergarten and second grade for those who do not have a current vision exam. If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to reach out to the Anderson nurses at firstname.lastname@example.org
A REMINDER . . . . .Happy Birthday at Anderson!
As a reminder, that while we love celebrating birthdays, (by announcing birthdays over the morning messages and birthday students being able to select a birthday pencil and book); students are not able to bring in birthday treats for their classes due to allergies, and student dietary needs,. This is a districtwide policy. Thanks for understanding. We do make sure kids are celebrated and feel special on their birthday. :)
Have old CD or DVD disks? We need them to make ART!
The Art Studio is looking for 200 CDs or DVDs to use for an art project. If you have any that you can donate it would be greatly appreciated! Color, condition, topic, age doesn't matter- they will not be used in any way except as a loom for weaving with yarn. Thank you so much! I'm excited to try this project with our 4th and 5th graders! Mrs. Varga
Just send them to school with your child and they can bring them to the Art Room! Thanks!
