ACCESS testing has taken place for our English Language Learners in first, second, fourth, and fifth grades. These students have done a phenomenal job with testing and we look forward to seeing their progress with language acquisition. Third graders are up next week!
Behaviorally, our students have been recognized for demonstrating respect. Classrooms earn a class reward when 10 snowmen have been earned for demonstrating this characteristic. Furthermore, grade level teams have been recognized every Friday for having the fewest absences and tardies. As always, we encourage you to have your student in school every day and on time. This week's grade level winner for both categories is 5th Grade! Congratulations to the entire 5th Grade Team!
In closing, we sent an email to all families earlier this week about the annual 5Essentials Survey. We encourage you to take the time and complete it because your feedback will help us guide improvement. The feedback from the parent survey will be shared on the School Report Card published annually by the Illinois State Board of Education. Thank you in advance for your time and continued support!
