Monroe March Newsletter


Dear Monroe Parents,

The Illinois 5Essentials School Survey is now open for parents. 5Essentials rates how a school is performing in areas such as leadership, collaboration, family involvement, support, and instruction. We currently have 15% of parent who have participated. In order for us to get results we need 20%. If you have not already taken the survey we would appreciate your feedback.

Now that 5Essentials is administered every year, it will be more useful for planning. Results from the survey will be used by both our school and the District 200 Board of Education to help guide our efforts.

The state will only provide a parent report for our school if at least twenty percent of our parents participate. We value your voice, so please take a few minutes to let us know how we are doing.

To take the short survey:

  1. Visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/
  2. Choose the Parent Survey.
  3. Enter “Dupage” for our county.
  4. Begin typing “Monroe Middle School” and you will see the correct address. (1855 Manchester Rd.)

Attention 8th grade parents: Please remember that your student will need a new physical and dental exam before entering high school. Exclusion day will be the day after Labor Day. If your student does not have a physical by then, they will be excluded until they get their physical completed. Please reach out to the health office if you need any resources (monroehealthoffice@cusd200.org). Please make appointments early as the doctor's offices fill appointments quickly in the summer. If you have your physical completed before Memorial Day, you can turn it into the Monroe office and we will make sure it goes to WNHS (Make a copy for yourself for safe keeping). Thank you
