We need 8 more families to fill out the survey!

Every year, District 303 conducts a satisfaction survey eliciting feedback from our students, teachers, and parents. This year, as part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), we will now be participating in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. As a parent or guardian, this survey will provide you with the opportunity to share your thoughts on important elements of school effectiveness about your child’s school.

We need at least 20% of our families to take this survey. You know Mr. Jarot will be overly friendly and persistent until we meet our goal. :)

We value your feedback and appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your suggestions for improvement. To take the parent survey please visit and select the appropriate survey. Click HERE for a more detailed letter.

School Lunches and Breakfast in PushCoin

Starting Wed, Feb 23rd, all student school lunches, breakfasts, and beverages will be recorded in their pushcoin account. There will continue to be NO COST for lunches and breakfasts for this school year, but they will now be recorded through pushcoin, even though no funds are being used.

Just as a reminder, the school lunch consists of an entree, milk, and fruit or vegetable. Your child may select more than one fruit or vegetable if they wish, but not less than one. If your child wants to have a juice box or bottle of water ordered for lunch, there is a cost for that. Also, if your child wants to order milk only and not the entire lunch, there is a cost for that.

  • Water $1.25

  • Juice Box $.75

  • Milk $.60

Updates from PTO Board

We will not have a formal PTO meeting this month. Stay tuned for more information about our upcoming events (we can host in person events again!!!!) Also thanks to everyone that joined us for virtual bingo Friday night. It was a fun time. Finally we are still looking someone to fill our treasurer board seat for the 2022-2023 school year. If you are looking for a way to get involved but can't help during the school day this is the opportunity for you! Many of the job requirements can be done from home. Our current treasurer will be available for you to shadow for the entire school year so you would be learning this role from an expert. If you are interested or have questions contact Brook at:
