Anderson Weekly News! 2/22/22

Welcome Home!

Where is Mr. Jarot's Newsletter in 20 seconds video?

Sorry, Anderson Families,

I was so distracted by the 2/22/22 festivities of the day that I didn't have time to record the video. :) However, if you have made it this far into the newsletter, keep going! I know you get a lot of info from the school and we are always looking for effective and efficient ways to keep you feeling connected. Feedback is always welcome. Speaking of feedback, please fill out the 5Essentials Parent Survey linked below.


Mr. Jarot

We need 10 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.

Little Caesar Pizza Kit Fundraiser

Thanks to everyone that participated in our fundraiser! We were able to raise $714 to help support our school! Hope everyone enjoyed their pizza!

Greater St. Charles Foundation Raffle Basket Donations Needed!

Each year the Greater St. Charles Education Foundation hosts a Silent Auction to help raise funds to support important needs of teachers and students of D303, through grants and scholarships. Each year our PTO contributes a basket to be auctioned off that is valued at $150-$300. Last year our community came together and very generously donated to our basket. Our school’s basket was one of the top prizes! This year our theme is Handyman. If you are willing to help donate an item, please click on the link to sign up. All items should be brought to the Anderson School Office ASAP. Thanks for your help in supporting our Foundation.
