Parents - We need your help!

This coming Monday our students will be participating a PARCC simulation to allow them to walk through the testing experience before it is the real thing. We will need every student to bring their FULLY CHARGED CHROMEBOOK plus a pair of EARBUDS. Please ensure your student has both of these items ready to go and brings them with them to school on Monday. We appreciate your help!

The Conversation

Hello WredHawk Parents:


Being an adolescent is a tough time in every child's life. And with today's culture, our students are struggling more than ever. There are many things that have not changed for our kids- they still yearn for our love and affection, they still want to build strong relationships with peers, and they still want to succeed.


This article talks about why we are seeing our kids struggle. It is a quick and interesting read. While more research is coming, here is a simple takeaway: look at how your kids are using screens and limit their time. Get them in front of their friends and your family.

A little bit about the contest from the local branch of the AAUW: The Batavia-Geneva-St. Charles Branch proudly continues its tradition of encouraging and honoring aspiring young writers through its Creative Writing Contest. In this technological age where communication via texting and tweeting sacrifices creativity for brevity, it is rewarding to see that many young people still take time to seek self-expression through prose and poetry.

Entries are submitted from 7th and 8th graders from our Tri-Cities - Batavia, Geneva and St Charles. Student from public schools, private, parochial and home schooled may submit an entry.

Winners have been invited to attend a special ceremony in their honor on Thursday, April 5, 2018. Congratulate these RedHawks on achieving this honor!
