Noteworthy: 112 Foundation FUNd Run 2020

The health and safety of the D112 students, faculty and community members are our top concern. To this end, the 2020 FUNd Run will be a VIRTUAL event.


This year FUNd Run participants may not be running (and walking) on the beautiful course through the Ravinia Festival neighborhood, but participants will still feel part of the D112 community. And even better, participants will help raise much needed funds to support students in our community as part of a need-based scholarship fund providing critical support for items such as school supplies, books and musical instrument rentals.


Participants will complete a 5K or 1-mile Family Walk between October 3 to October 12th on whatever course they choose. Be sure to post pictures of your family and tag us on social media (@112foundation) or email pictures to us. “I ran FUNd Run 2020” signs are posted at all D112 schools for the perfect post-race photo op!

Online registration will begin September 1 and close October 12. Register at: 112foundation.org. All participants will be entered into a raffle with the opportunity to win prizes from local businesses. Check our sponsor page for businesses who donated.


At its heart, the FUNd Run is both a community event, and a fundraiser. In a year when the anticipated need is higher than ever, the FUNd Run will not have a 2020 race giveaway. We recognize many participants look forward to the race swag and wear it proudly throughout the year.


People registered for the event by WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 may visit the FUNd Run Swag Give-A- Way and pick up some vintage FUNd Run giveaways from past years. The Swag Give-A-Way will be held on October 1 from 2pm to 6pm (rain date: October 2, 2pm to 6pm). Location TBD.

MAP Testing HYBRID Learning

Beginning the week of September 14, Hybrid Learning students in grades Kindergarten through 8th Grade will be taking the NWEA MAP Growth Assessments in Reading and Mathematics. North Shore School District 112 utilizes the NWEA MAP Growth Assessments to inform students’ immediate instructional needs and to collect a data point to measure growth over time. The MAP Growth assessment is an adaptive, norm-referenced assessment utilized to measure student growth over time, understand student readiness levels, and target instruction for students needing additional support or challenge. Your child's teacher will be communicating additional information regarding testing and preparation in the coming days. Please check out the NWEA Family Toolkit for more information!

This past week, Ms. Donelan introduced a Collaborative Mural project to her artists. When your student finishes making their DOT, please have them bring it into school and turn it into their classroom's art box. Please contact Ms. D at mdonelan@nssd112.org with any questions!

Sherwood Virtual Open House 9/17/20

We're eager to virtually open our school doors to families for Open House. We will be moving back our Open House date to September, 17th to ensure that all schools across the district have it on the same day. This will allow both our hybrid and virtual classrooms to access content on the same day, as we know many families may have students being taught by teachers from multiple school sites.


Our teachers this year will be recording videos and we will be placing them online for you to view at your own leisure. We will answer the questions you have submitted in our videos.
