i-Ready Winter Scores Coming Home in Backpacks

As you know, your child took the Winter iReady Diagnostic Assessment just before Winter Break. The report with their scores will be coming home in backpacks this week. Click on the link below to read a full letter from the D303 Assessment Dept. regarding this assessment.

Snow Gear for Recess!

Per the CUSD 303 Elementary School Handbook, we will be going outside for recess as long as the temperature (with wind chill) is above 0˚F and it is not raining. Don’t forget to label your child’s outerwear so it does not end up in the ever-growing Lost & Found.

Please be sure if your child wants to play in the snow during our outdoor recess time that they bring a coat, hat, gloves, snow pants, and boots. If students do not have all their snow clothes, they will be asked to stay on the blacktop during recess so they don't get wet. If at all possible, please have them practice putting on all their snow gear by themselves. This allows them to have ample time outside and not use a lot of time getting dressed.

If your family needs help getting winter coats, gloves, hats... for your kids please call the office or email Mr. Jarot. We have tons of new donated items and want to help.

Office Number: 331-228-3300
