Spring i-Ready Diagnostic Reports
The i-Ready Spring Diagnostic Reports for both Math and Reading were distributed to students to bring home yesterday, so check their backpacks if they haven't already given it to you! You will find the following information included with the two diagnostic reports:
A letter from Mr. Dave Chiszar, who is the Director of Assessment and Accountability, that explains the I-Ready diagnostic report and what is being included in the documents sent home.
A “ How Do I Read the Diagnostic Reports” document that will support you as you look at the data.
Also, please note that students have access to their i-Ready Personalized Pathway during the summer break. Should you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s counselor.

SUMMER READING - GET THE SCOOP!
Keep Learning During the Summer
There are several ways to keep your child learning during this summer.
One of the best, and most important, things your child can do during the summer to keep a hold of all they have learned throughout the school year is to read. Reading novels, short stories, graphic novels, magazines, and listening to audio books is the most proven way to help students with reading. The act of reading for enjoyment grows a student’s abilities in vocabulary, comprehension, analysis, and writing.
Your child can also continue learning during the summer with i-Ready lessons and Learning Games! i-Ready Personalized Instruction provides students with lessons based on their skill levels and needs, so they can learn at a pace that is just right for them.
These lessons are fun and interactive to keep your child engaged as they learn. In addition to the lessons, Learning Games for Mathematics allow students to practice math in a fun and engaging way, helping them develop a positive view of math. i-Ready will be available for student use during the summer until the end of July.
Reminders from the Health Office
Medication Pickup Reminder
Please do not forget to pick up all medications by the last day of school! Those medicines not picked up by an adult by May 25th will need to be disposed. The only medications that can be given to a student to transport home are those that are allowed to be self carried (Epi Pens, Pancreatic Enzymes, or inhalers). If there is a self-carry form on file for one of those medications, please remind your student to stop in and pick up medication before leaving on the last day. All medication orders must be renewed each school year. Forms are available on the district website under “Parents”, then “forms” or by contacting the health office.
Appointments for the required 6th grade and 9th-grade physicals tend to fill up quickly and should be scheduled now! Please submit the completed physicals to the respective schools as they are done. They are required to be submitted for review prior to the first day.
The health office is closed during the summer months. We will return for limited hours beginning in early August. Please contact me if there are new medical concerns for your child or if your child will need a health plan at school.
School Physicals for the 2022-2023 School Year
The Illinois school code requires that students entering an Illinois school for the first time, and all sixth and ninth grades, must submit evidence of a physical examination and a complete record of immunizations prior to starting classes or receiving services. Physical Exams and Vaccine Records are required for students prior to August 10, 2022 (the first day of school for the 22/23 year). Make your appointments today as these appointments fill up quickly! Please contact your school nurse prior to May 25, 2022, if you need a copy of your child's immunizations.
Have a safe and healthy summer!
