We hope everyone had a wonderful extended weekend and took the opportunity to reflect on Dr. Martin Luther King and his legacy! Although we continue navigating the rapidly changing path of the never ending pandemic, we could not be more proud of our scholars for their daily efforts! We also greatly appreciate all of our families being incredibly patient and supportive throughout these challenges!

5Essentials Parent Survey

5Essentials Parent Survey

Students and teachers across Illinois now have the opportunity to participate in the ninth annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness. Additionally, your 4th-8th grade student will be asked about their experiences in school to help give school leaders critical student input and help develop future school improvement plans. If you would like to view the student survey questions or opt-out your student please complete the form found at: d123.org/five. You and your student's identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and anonymous. To get started with the survey head to d123.org/five.
