The quality of our expectations determines the quality of our actions.

Young Authors

The annual Young Authors contest is underway and submissions are due 2/20! All Sipley students are invited to participate. You may write ANYTHING you want – narrative stories, nonfiction, persuasive speeches, or poems!

All submissions are due to Mrs. Ley and will be judged by classroom teachers, Ms. Makowski, Ms DeLambo and Mrs. Ley. Two winners will be chosen from each class, and will have the opportunity to attend a fun, free, half-day event at Jefferson Junior High in April.

The building winner will be invited to attend the statewide conference at Illinois State University with one winner from each other D68 school. There, you will attend workshops and meet a panel of authors for a Q&A. It is a great event.

So let’s get writing! Turn in your best work by February 20.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent/Teacher Conferences are scheduled for February 11 and 12. If you haven't schedule a conference, please do so. You can choose a time by going to Skyward, our student database, you can contact your child's teacher for a time, or you can contact our office at 630-985-7150. We expect 100% attendance.
