PBIS Reset & Relaunch

As the weather warms up we want to make sure students are reminded of the PBIS expectations around the school and during lunch/recess. On Wednesday, March 23rd we will have an event designed by the Culture & Climate Committee. Teachers will take their homerooms around to each station. Responsible 8th graders will be assigned to each group to assist. 6th and 7th graders will not participate in this event but they did create posters for us.

IAR Testing

The Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) assesses progress of students in grades 3-8 in meeting the Illinois Learning Standards in English language arts and mathematics. The testing schedule is below.

The best way to have your child be prepared for these testing days is to make sure they have enough rest by going to bed early, eat a good breakfast, and to provide your child with words of encouragement.
