YOU CAN GET OFF SANTA'S NAUGHTY LIST IF YOU TAKE THIS SURVEY. Help us get some encouraging and helpful feedback.


Thank you to those of you who were able to complete the Illinois 5Essentials Parent Survey during Parent-Teacher Conferences. We already have 17% participation at this time. We need at least 20% participation in order to receive a score. We as a staff utilize your input to celebrate and continue the things we get good feedback about, and create goals to improve any areas we need growth. Your input does not simply get dumped into a survey abyss. We devour the graphs and trends that your input gives us. Filling out this survey is one easy way to support our school.

If you have not taken the survey, there is still time. To take the parent survey please visit and select the appropriate survey. It's easy! It only takes about 8 min. Thanks!
