A Note From Mrs. Stoffers

Hello families!

Thank you so much to our families who participated in our Family Heritage Night. It was so amazing to see everyone come together to learn and grow. There was amazing food, fun crafts, and wonderful entertainment. If you missed it, we hope to see you next year. It was so much fun!

Congrats to our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders for completing their first few days of IAR testing. We know they did their best and that's all that matters.

Once again our families have delivered when requested...we have reached our 20% threshold to receive our feedback for our 5Essentials Survey. Thank you! There is still time to fill out the survey, if you would like! See the link in the section below.

A Note From the Nurse

Please fill out the attached Student Annual Health History Form and Autorization for Emergency Medical Treatment for the 2023-2024 school year. Every student needs this form filled out. As soon as you complete the form for your child(ren), feel free to return them to school. The form is listed below and both pages should be filled out.

Also, the state as a whole is seeing more strep and norovirus. If you notice any symptoms related to these illnesses, please keep your child home. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Nurse Randi at

5 Essentials Survey Open to Parents

Dear SD308 Parents,

Students, teachers, and parents across Illinois now have an opportunity to participate in the eleventh 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 in a survey about your child’s school.

On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be 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

Prior research in more than 400 schools has shown that schools that were strong on at least three of these “5Essential” indicators were 10 times more likely to improve student learning gains in math and reading than those that were weak on three or more Essentials.

All teachers and 4th through 12th grade students will be responding to this survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated for schools if their teachers and/or students meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent. These reports will be sent to schools and districts in May 2023 and will also be included in the State School Report Card.

Additionally, your district has chosen to provide the optional Parent survey supplement. If at least 20 percent of parents at each school complete this survey, a parent supplement report will also be generated. The parent data will not be reported on the State Report Card.

Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey for students and teachers will be conducted January 24, 2023 through March 31, 2023. The Parent Survey Supplement will be conducted during that same timeframe. To take the survey please visit and select the appropriate survey to begin. Note: you must choose Kendall County in order to locate all SD 308 schools.
