We're Almost There

We need 13 more parents to fill out this survey. THANKS!!!!!


The Parent Survey is currently open. Take the survey by visiting https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey. Make sure you enter Kane County in the box for county even if your home or your child’s school is in DuPage County. This will allow you to correctly select your child’s school.


We need at least 20% of families to complete this survey. We use the results of the survey to help us with future planning. So far our current response rate is 17%. We would really appreciate families taking the survey. This Parent Survey is currently open and will remain so through April 2, 2021.

We really appreciate your assistance!

Where is my Child's Report Card?

Just another friendly reminder that Teachers have prepared progress reports for each student. The Report Cards are ready for viewing electronically on Home Access Center (HAC). Just like last year, Paper copies will NOT be sent home. As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or compliments, please reach out to your child's teacher.

If you need help logging into your HAC, don't be shy. Our office team can help you get logged in. :) Call any time. 331-228-3300
