Message from Principal Haugens
There is no school tomorrow, March 4th and Monday, March 7th. We hope all students enjoy the four day weekend. There is a teacher institute tomorrow and there is no school on Monday in honor of Casimir Pulaski.
The end of the second trimester is tomorrow. Report Cards will be emailed to parents on Friday, March 18, 2022. A hard copy of report cards will not be sent home for the second trimester.
We will make adjustments to our dismissal procedures for the third trimester. Please refer to the information below. First - Fifth grade students will exit the front door and stand next to the main entrance during dismissal. This was the procedure prior to the 2020-2021 school year. Kindergarten students will continue with their current procedures.
Student grouping and placement for the 2022-2023 school year takes place in May. Please click on the following link if you would like to provide information to help in the placement process.

Have you filled out a 5Essential Survey yet? We need 20% of parents to complete the 5Essential Survey in order for DuJardin to receive feedback. The survey asks questions about students' experiences, attitudes, and activities in school. We ask that parents take some time to complete the survey at the following link: https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/. Fourth and Fifth grade students took the 5 Essentials survey today.

Student Placement Information
This request form is due back to Mr. Haugens by Friday, April 8th. Although a request form is not required, parent input about a child’s academic experiences can provide valuable insight to this process. Please remember that considerations for placing students in classes include but are not limited to class size, gender ratio, academic levels, student learning styles, specific student needs, diversity, and student peer relations. It is not recommended that a parent request a specific teacher due to the fact that requests are difficult to satisfy and teaching assignments can change from school year to school year. If you have questions about this form, please phone Mr. Patrick Haugens at 630-894-9200.

FirstView: The Bloomingdale School District is excited to inform you that the District will be launching FirstView®, a bus tracking and parent communication app for your smartphone or desktop on Thursday, February 10, 2022. FirstView® is being made available to parents through our continued partnership with our transportation provider, First Student. The FirstView® app, located at www.firstviewapp.com or in the Google Play App Store or Apple iOS App Store, allows parents to track their child’s bus live in real time. Parents will be able to follow a map screen that shows the location and direction of their child’s bus, the bus stop schedule for the current day and timestamps for school arrivals and departures. Parents will know when the bus arrives or departs from school. Using GPS, the app is designed to provide parents with a better guideline for bus location and its estimated time of arrival at bus stops. Students should still be at their assigned bus stop 7 minutes prior to the estimated or scheduled arrival time. Among its many great features, the app allows parents to customize alerts and email notifications to alert them when their child’s bus is at a chosen distance or number of minutes away from their stop. Also, parents can track the buses for all of their children using individual color coding for each child, so every selected stop will appear on the map on their phone or computer simultaneously for easy viewing. This is a great feature for grandparents and other student caregivers.
Our District Technology Department has worked closely with First Student over the past month to ensure additional security measures are in place to safeguard student information when parents use the FirstView® app, which requires a your child's Student ID and an unique Security Code. The security measures are designed so only you can view your student’s bus stop and information specific to your child.
Please watch for a message next week that will contain the necessary information to set-up this application. In addition, there will be resources located on the District Webpage within the Business Office's department page.
Bloomingdale SD13 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 give you the opportunity to share your thoughts on important elements of school effectiveness. The responses will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide our improvement efforts. 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 March 11, 2022. To take the survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey.
All Bloomingdale SD13 teachers, as well as students in 4th - 8th grade, are being asked to complete this survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated for schools if their teachers and/or students meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent. Teachers will work with students to assist them with logging in and taking the student survey.
On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey is administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:
- Effective Leaders
- Collaborative Teachers
- Involved Families
- Supportive Environments
- Ambitious Instruction
We value your feedback and appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your input.
For more information about the Illinois 5Essentials Survey, or if you have any questions or concerns, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at 1-866-440-1874 or email@example.com.
