5Essentials Survey for Parents is Open
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.
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:
Choose the Parent Survey.
Enter “Dupage” for our county.
Begin typing "Washington" until you see the correct address.

Kindergarten Round-up for Parents and Students
Informational sessions, called “Kindergarten Round-Up”, are for parents of children who will be starting Kindergarten in the 2020-2021 school year. Washington School’s Kindergarten Round-Up will be Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 6:00P.M. to turn in paperwork. The meeting begins at 6:30 P.M.
Kindergarten Round-Up is held in the school for parents and incoming Kindergarten children. The occasion gives parents the opportunity to meet the principal and the kindergarten teachers. Parents will also become acquainted with the kindergarten program. Parents will receive a copy of the Kindergarten Handbook at this meeting. This is also an opportunity for children to visit the school. Students will have another opportunity to visit the classroom in August prior to the first day of kindergarten
Parents are encouraged to begin the enrollment process before February 27 by bringing their child’s original birth certificate and three proofs of residency to Washington School. However, parents are certainly able to bring the necessary documentation to the Kindergarten Round-Up.
Parents who are unable to attend Kindergarten Round-up are asked to call the school at 630-682-2222 to add their child’s name to the Kindergarten mailing list.
For all necessary enrollment information, please visit www.cusd200.org. Please feel free to call the school with any additional questions.
Parents will need to pre-enroll their child in order to complete the online registration process.
