It was great to see so many smiling faces at yesterday's student material pick up between 2-6pm. Wednesday was a historic day for DuJardin School, it was the first time that students received a fully implemented standards based report card for all subjects and at all grades, K-5. Standards based grading and reporting at the elementary level in D13 has been a labor of love since the summer of 2016.
If you have any questions regarding your child's current report card please either contact your child's teacher or Mr. Dwyer (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 630-894-9200. If you need to pick up your child's report card, stop by the school office between 8am-4pm, Monday-Friday.
We are hoping to get students back in the building after winter break starting on January 4th. We will follow the same A/B/remote schedule that we did prior to November 13th before going fully remote. District #13 Superintendent, Dr. Bartelt, is holding several focus groups to discuss the return of students. The first focus group meeting is scheduled to meet this evening with two more meetings next week.
Focus groups will discuss the following topics.
- Adding an additional day of in person learning for students;
- Figuring out alternatives to delivering instruction at the middle school;
- Thinking of useful interventions that can help students and families with academic recovery;
- Compiling a useful list of resources for social emotional support of students, families and staff
The link to the focus group for tonight can be found HERE.
