Good afternoon Raider families,

Wow we have had a busy week and more busyness to come. It sure does feel like Spring with all of this activity! We are staying strong with our COVID status at ZERO for students and staff and possibly our lowest quarantine numbers to date at the Primary School.

We enjoyed special activities all week with Read Across America and Dr. Seuss week, dress up spirit days, as well as adding wishes to our Wishtree. Check out our Facebook page for all of the pictures.

The staff spent some time recording some extra silly videos to get students excited about an upcoming bike raffle. Our PBIS team obtained 12 donated bikes, 2 for each grade level (K-5), to raffle off using Raider tickets before Spring Break. Ask your children about their teachers acting skills!

The Illinois State Board of Education is continuing to mandate standardized testing this year. Though this is more burdensome to our already burdened staff and students, these scores will be very valuable to us in our efforts to have remained in school in-person for this entire school year, unlike many schools across Illinois. The test is called the Illinois Assessment of Readiness and students in grade 3rd, 4th, and 5th will take this assessment beginning March 15th and ending sometime after break. Your child's homeroom teacher will give you exact testing dates and some advice on preparing your child at home for testing at school.

I need your feedback to help make improvements in our building. Please complete the 5essentials survey that was sent to you this month and give us your thoughts!

Continue to send cold weather clothes since we will be outside as much as possible. Be sure to get out with your children and play, play, play to enjoy this sun and fresh air together!

See below for additional dates and activities:
Thursday, March 4 @ 6:30 PM - Board meeting at High School
Tuesday, March 9 - PTO STEAM Engine Fundraiser! Be on the lookout for more information to follow!
Wednesday, March 10 - St. Jude Math-A-Thon Fundraiser
