Principals’ Message May 10th

Posted May 10th, 2015 by J. Kasinger

Good afternoon Eisenhower Community,

We hope that you are having a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!  Below are a few notes for you.

Enjoy!

Steve Kern          and        Brandon Todd

 

After School Homework Club

This week 8th grade students that have 3 or more missing assignments will be required to attend Afterschool Homework Club.  Our goal is to get the students caught up with all missing assignments so that we can have 100% of our students qualifying to attend the end of year 8th grade events.  Letters were mailed home to the parents of students needing to stay after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The 8th Grade Field Trip will be on June 3rd .

The 8th Grade Dance will be on June 5th .

The 8th Grade Graduation will be on June 9th .

 

Starting this week we will also require all 7th graders with 5 or more missing assignments to attend the after school homework club.  For students to attend the end of year 7th grade field trip they must not have any missing assignments.  It is our hope that with these supports all of our 7th graders will qualify to attend the special field trip being planned for them.  Letters were mailed home to the parents of students needing to stay after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The 7th Grade Field Trip will be on June 11th.

 

A note from the Eisenhower nurse for 8th grade parents

The high school nurse needs a copy of the student’s current physical in her office by June 5 if the student is participating in a summer sports camp at the high school.

If your student needs a copy of the physical, they need to inform the Eisenhower nurse first period, and the copy will be ready at their lunch period.  Thank you.  Mrs. Peggy Harte RN   #847-357-5447.

 

A Message from High School District 211 School Nurses Regarding Physical Exams for 8th Grade Students

If your eighth grade student will be going for a sports physical and you would like that physical to count as their  9th grade physical for District 211, the physical exam must be completed on the DHS State of Illinois Certificate of Child Health Exam form revised 2/2013.  Incoming 9th grade physicals will not be accepted on IHSA forms or any other DHS form revised prior to 2/2013.  Please make sure you also complete the answers in the parent portion and sign the form, this is required also in order for the physical to be accepted.

 

Attendance Calls

Please remember to call the Eisenhower attendance line if your child is going to be absent from school.  Every morning we call parents when children are not present at school to confirm that they are safe.  As a reminder parents of 8th grade students who will be attending Summer School on June 9th can call in any time prior to the 9th to let our attendance secretary know that your child will be absent from school.  These phone calls help us to avoid bothering you during the day.

Principals’ Message May 3rd

Posted May 4th, 2015 by J. Kasinger

Good afternoon,

I hope that you are enjoying your weekend.  Below are a few announcements from Eisenhower.

Steve Kern and Brandon Todd

 

8th grade end of the year

As we are sure you know by now board policy states that 8th graders cannot have any missing assignments as of June 2nd at 2:15 pm in order to take place in graduation. It is imperative that they stay on top of all homework assignments and classwork.  Starting this week students with 5 or more missing assignments will be required to stay after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays until they get caught up.  Last week letters were mailed home to parents of students that will need to stay after school.  A different notification letter was also sent home to parents of students with 1-4 missing assignments.  The students in the second group are not required to stay on Tuesdays and Thursdays at this time.

As we near the end of the school year, Eisenhower has many incentives and activities planned for our students. We would like all of our students to be able to join in the fun. Students need to remain in good academic standing, exhibit appropriate behavior, and maintain regular and timely attendance to be able to participate. These expectations have been repeatedly communicated to our students since the start of our third trimester in February. Please help us to make the end of the year a fun and memorable one for you and your student.

If you are able to come and volunteer for a shift, please email Tara Corwine tara.corwine@gmail.com as soon as possible.

Principals’ Message April 17th

Posted April 21st, 2015 by J. Kasinger

Good afternoon,

I am very proud of our Eisenhower Eagles and the effort that they are putting forward during MAP testing.  They are demonstrating what the results can be to  hard work and determination.  I am confident that our students’ growth scores will be representative of the learning that took place all year!

Please see below for a few important announcements and enjoy your weekend!

Eighth Grade Graduation Practice

Parents of eighth-grade students:  As you may know, the 2014-15 school year was extended by five days due to the cancelation of school on severe weather days. The District 54 Board of Education recently approved an amended school calendar establishing Friday, June 12, as the last day of school for students in early childhood through seventh grade.

In collaboration with District 211, District 54 has set the last day of school for eighth-grade students as Tuesday, June 9.  That same evening all District 54 junior highs will conduct their graduation ceremony.  Our graduation is scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m. at Hoffman Estates High School.  Eisenhower Junior High School will conduct their graduation practice on Monday, June 8th.

We are aware of potential conflicts for students due to the fact that some activities and summer school programs in District 211 begin June 8 and June 9, respectively.  Because District 211’s registration process is ongoing, we are unable to identify a complete list of impacted students.

At no point, will your child be penalized for their enrollment in a District 211 program. If a conflict applies to your child, please call me at your earliest convenience.

 

Missing Assignments Letters

We will begin mailing letters to families of 8th grade students with missing assignments.  Our goal is to have 100% of our students eligible to attend the 8th Grade Graduation, which means students need to have all of their 3rd trimester assignments turned into their teachers by 2:15 on Tuesday, June 2nd.  Starting in May students with five or more of missing assignments will be required to stay after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and possibly Fridays.  That means that if a child has missing assignments and is currently on the Track team they will be required to miss Track practice to attend this study session to help them get caught up so that we can ensure their eligibility for the graduation ceremony.

Notes from the Nurse

8th grade parents—The high school nurse needs a copy of the student’s current physical in her office by June 5 if the student is participating in a summer sports camp at the high school.

If your student needs a copy of the physical, they need to inform the Eisenhower nurse first period, and the copy will be ready at their lunch period.

 

Dental Clinic The Smile Illinois Dental Clinic will be available for Eisenhower students on May 15, 2015. The clinic provides dental examinations, cleanings,  and fluoride treatments. The clinic will be held at Lincoln Prairie School, and the Eisenhower nurse, Mrs. Harte RN, will provide the transportation  that morning. The Mobile Dentists provide grants to families who require full financial assistance and subsidizes fees for those who need financial aid. The student may also attend if the family has dental insurance, or Medicaid.  A permission form must be completed and brought to Mrs. Harte by April 24.  Please contact Mrs. Harte RN if you have a question or have not received a permission form at #847-357-5447.

 

7th Grade Registration Form

Principals’ Message April

Posted April 6th, 2015 by J. Kasinger

Good afternoon Eisenhower community,

Our students have had a wonderful return to school.  It looks as if the time spent on Spring Break rejuvenated our students so that we can end the school year on a strong note.

Below you will find some important announcements.  Have a great long weekend!

 

Steve Kern              Brandon Todd
Principal                  Assistant Principal

 

8th Grade Events

  • Each Junior High School holds a graduation ceremony for eighth grade students.  Our graduation date has been set for Tuesday, June 9th at 7:00 p.m.  Our graduation will be held at Hoffman Estates High School.  School District 54 Board policy states that in order for eighth grade students to participate in the graduation ceremony, all assignments must be completed and turned in no later than one week prior to the program.  To be eligible to participate in the graduation ceremony each 8th grader must have all of the assignments given during the third trimester turned in by the end of 9th period on June 2nd.  Assignments that are not adequately completed will be given back to the student to finish and resubmit by the deadline.  It is your student’s responsibility to clear any missing assignments with the respective teacher.  For the most current information on missing assignments, please access the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.  As always you are encouraged to contact your child’s teacher if you have a question regarding homework or missing assignments.  Starting with in the month of May emails will be sent home weekly to the parents of any child with a missing assignment.

 

Inappropriate behavior could also cause a student to be excluded from graduation activities and the ceremony.  This decision is at the discretion of school administrators.  Students that receive a major documentation during the third trimester could lose the ability to attend graduation.  These decisions will be made on a case by case basis.

We will hold our graduation practice with the students during the day on June 9th.  All 8th graders are expected to be at school on June 9th to participate in this activity.

Finally, the district also requires that prior to the graduation ceremony, all obligations be met regarding lost or damaged books, fees, equipment, etc. in order to participate in the ceremony and receive a report card and diploma.

Having seen how hard our students are working we believe that all students will be successful in meeting these requirements so that they can participate in the graduation ceremony and other 8th grade events.

  • Our 8th grade field trip is tentatively scheduled to take place on Wednesday, June 3rd.  To be eligible to attend this event, 8th graders may not have any missing assignments from Monday, April 13th through Wednesday, May 27th.  Students also may not have any major documentations from Monday, April 13th through the day of the event.
  • Our 8th grade dance will take place on Friday, June 5th.  To be eligible to attend this event 8th graders cannot have any missing assignments from Monday, April 13th through Tuesday, June 2nd.  Students also may not have any major documentations from Monday, April 13th through Friday, June 5th.
  • We will be distributing our gowns, as well as any pins or ribbons that were purchased by the students, on Friday, June 5th.

 

7th Grade Events

  • The 7th grade field trip will tentatively take place on Thursday, June 11th.  To be eligible to attend this event students must have turned in all of the assignments starting on Monday, April 13th through Friday, June 5th.  Students many not have any major documentations from Monday, April 13th through Thursday, June 11th.

  • 8th grade students will take the Mathematics test on April 16th and 17th.
  • 7th grade students will take the Mathematics test on April 20th and 21st.

 

School Rules Reminder

Recently we took a moment to remind the students about a few school rules.  Please take time this weekend to follow up with your child to ensure that they understand the expectations.

  • Students cannot bring to school any weapons, drugs, or alcohol.  This applies to real or look alike items.  Students found with these items will receive major consequences, which could include suspension and police intervention.
  • We understand that many students have cell phones.  It has been the expectation all year that cell phones must be turned off and kept in their lockers during the day.  Cell phones will be confiscated if they are being carried with them from class to class.  These cell phones will be turned into the office and parents will be called and might have to pick them up.  Students carrying the cell phones from class to class during the day will also receive a documentation.

 

Grab-N-Go Breakfast Program

Posted March 17th, 2015 by J. Kasinger

The breakfast program is up and running now at Eisenhower & it’s not to late to sign up!!!  Students who turn in a permission slip will be assigned to a station, where they can pick up a breakfast bar and a piece of fruit each morning.  It’s a great way to start off the day, so get your permission forms in today!  Extra permission slips can be found in the main office.

Principals’ Update Feb. 15th

Posted February 19th, 2015 by J. Kasinger

We hope that you are enjoying your long weekend.  Here are a few announcements from Eisenhower.

Sincerely,

Steve Kern    Brandon Todd

Principal        Assistant Principal

 

Afterschoolapalooza

Our next Afterschoolapalooza will be on Friday, March 6th.  To be eligible students need to not have any missing assignments starting with assignments given on Monday, February 9th through Friday, February 27th.  All assignments given during this window of time need to be completed and turned in by the end of 9th period on Monday, March 2nd.  Students can also not have any Major Documentations to the office during the period of time beginning on Monday, February 9th through Friday, March 6th.

 

Dropping off students in the morning

With the onset of colder weather we are finding more parents dropping students off.  Understandably, parents would like to drop off their children as close as they can to the school.  There is a safety concern with parents turning onto Rosedale and stopping immediately at the corner to drop their children off.  As a result of parents suddenly stopping in a no parking zone to drop their children off, other cars are backed up onto Hassell road and students sometimes have to weave between cars to cross the street.  We want all of our students to arrive at school safely.  Please observe the no parking / stopping signs posted on Hassell and Rosedale and only stop / park on sides of the road that it is legal to do so.

We are also finding students starting to cross in the middle of the street to get to cars on the opposite side of Hassell.  For the safety of the students we will be once again asking the students to cross as the crosswalks only.  I am hopeful that we will soon have warm temperatures to melt the snow on sidewalks and street corners.

 

PARCC testing

We are beginning to prepare for the PARCC assessment.  The assessment window is from March 9th – 20th.  It is essential that students are present at school during this time.  Please keep these dates in mind when scheduling appointments or vacations.

March 9th, 10th, and 11th – Literacy (all grades)

March 12th, 13th – Math (all grades)
