News to Use in April!

Posted April 11th, 2014 by KPrusko

Hello Eisenhower Community,

It has been wonderful to experience spring like weather this week.  We completed our Rally for Respect/Project Unify week with a PBIS celebration and MAP testing kick off!  Students participated in several activities this week including: Autism Awareness, Spread the Word to End the Word, STAND UP and Motivational Speaker!  It was a wonderful week- ask your child about it!

As mentioned,   Spring MAP testing begins next week. Scores are utilized to determine student class placement for the 2014 – 2015 school year.  It is also an opportunity for students to demonstrate what they have learned throughout the year. Please discuss with your child the importance of doing their very best.

 

Graduation

At this time, we do not have any additional graduation tickets beyond the 6 issued to each student.  At the time of distribution, families not using all 6 tickets are asked to turn them back into our main office so we can accommodate larger families.  You may continue to request extra tickets, but not all requests may be honored.  In the situation of non-custodial parents, you will be issued 3 tickets (in addition to the custodial parent receiving 6). Please contact Barb Bratt if you would like to request extra tickets at 847-357-5500.

 

5Essentials Survey: Beginning March 17, teachers, parents, guardians and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness and help us guide school improvement.  The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online on behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education. The survey identifies five indicators that can lead to important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. Research has shown that schools strong on these indicators are 10 times more likely to improve student learning. The five indicators are

 

    • Effective leaders
    • Collaborative teachers
    • Involved families
    • Supportive environments
    • Ambitious Instruction

 

To take the parent survey, please visit http://Illinois.5-essentials.org between March 17 and April 25, 2014. When searching for your school’s name, remember to look up the full name.  We would like as many of our parents to take this survey as possible, if we can assist you in any way please let us know.  Please see attached letter detailing the 5Esssentials Survey.

Dear Eisenhower Community~

Thanks to all the families that attended conferences and braved the horizontal snow and ice!  If you were unable to visit with a teacher and/or attend, we will be sending the conference folders home with students on Tuesday.  Please call/email any of the teachers if you have any questions.  Thank you for all the families that brought in canned goods for the Student Council Food Drive for the District 54 Food Pantry at Keller JH.  We are collecting food until February 3rd ~ Students can bring items to the first period class! We are setting a goal of 1000 items!!

Superintendent DuRoss’ most recent article written for the Daily Herald was published in print today. The article is accessible on the District 54 website at http://sd54.org/. Mr. DuRoss also appears in a video related to the article content. The link to the video, which is cited in the article, is http://sd54.org/board/mission/.

Important Information-On Jan. 1, the State of Illinois implemented the Firearm Concealed Carry Act (Public Act 98-0063) which allows citizens in Illinois to obtain a license to carry a concealed firearm with them into certain public places. The law also makes provisions for locations where firearms are not allowed, even by citizens who have a license. Schools are such a prohibited area. Specifically the law states that “a licensee under this act shall not knowingly carry a firearm on or into: any building, real property, and parking area under the control of a public or private elementary or secondary school.”
As a part of this new law, school districts are required to post signs stating that the carrying of firearms on our property or into our schools is prohibited. These signs shall be clearly and conspicuously posted at the entrance of a building. Students, parents and visitors will see these new signs as they enter the schools and we wanted everyone to be aware of the purpose of these signs and the requirement to post them.

High School EXPLORE Information

For parents of 8th graders, we realize that many may have questions regarding high school placement.  We want to remind parents to contact District 211 with questions regarding Explore results and placement issues. Here is the contact number for the high school:

Hello Eisenhower Community,

As this week comes to a close, I wanted to send a quick reminder out about ISAT testing next week.  You can help your student do his/her best on the test by:

  • reminding your student to ask the teacher questions if he/she does not understand the test direction;
  • letting your student know that you are confident in his/her ability to do his/her best;
  • advising your student not to worry about the test — just to do the best he/she can.
  • Students need to have a calculator for the math portion.  Teachers will give reminders and collect calculators. If your child lost or does not have a calculator, please send them with one by Monday.  In addition, they are available for purchase at school from Mr. Cohen ($15.00) in the main office.

Today is the end of 2nd Trimester which is hard to believe.  Hope you are all enjoying the bit of sun we have today !

  • ISAT:  We will be giving your child the state-required achievement tests from March 3rd -March 14th.  Students in grades seventh and eighth will be tested in reading and mathematics. Students in grade seven will also be tested in science.  The tests are a part of the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) program and are being given to all eligible students.  The results of the state tests will be reported to you on the School Report Card by the end of October 2014, along with information about your child’s performance.  We will review these results along with information from our local assessments to help us improve our school program.  In order to accommodate the testing sessions, our class schedules from March 3rd –March 12th  will be modified.  During our testing blocks, the building will be silent to ensure that all students can focus and give their full effort.  ISAT will be given on the following days:

March 3rd-March 5th—Reading & Mathematics

March 11th and 12th—Science (7th only)

 

You can help your student do his/her best on the test by:

Hello Eisenhower Community~

 

Hope you are staying warm.. Just a few important notes~

 

Graduation Orders!

If you have not completed the graduation order form(8th graders only)- Please do so by Friday, 2/7!  Students must rent a gown to participate in graduation.  The order form is on our website until 2/7 for your convenience.

 

Missing work

This week letters were mailed home listing current, missing work .  I have attached the letter as reference (only students with 3 or more missing assignments will receive this).  Please contact teachers directly with questions. Eighth grade students may not have any missing work in order to participate in the graduation ceremony.  Helpful information can be found on the Parent Portal: Portal access is currently granted to District 54 parents and guardians, as well as to seventh- and eighth-grade students. The District 54 Campus Portal is a safe, secure web-based communications tool that allows parents/guardians to participate more directly in their students’ learning and school lives. The portal provides online access to student grades, assignments, immunizations, test scores, demographic information and more. Grades, scores and assignments will not be visible for students in third grade and younger. Parents and guardians will see information related to any student they are authorized to view. Students will only be able to access their own information. For more information visit: http://sd54.org/portal/

Last Day of School

As you know, District 54 canceled school four times in January due to the winter weather. Whenever we cancel school, we add a day to the end of our school calendar. Therefore the last day of school is currently Thursday, June 5. When districts submit their school calendars to the State Board of Education they must include a provision for five possible emergency days. No one can predict what the weather will be in February and March. If we cancel school one more time, our last day will be June 6. If we exhaust our five emergency days, we will ask the Illinois State Superintendent of Education to approve “Act of God Days.” These days can only be used for situations that pose a hazardous threat to students and are beyond the control of the district. If approved, school districts do not need to make up these days of missed school. If we do ask for an “Act of God Day” approval, we will not be able to announce the last day of school until we get approval from the state superintendent. We are hopeful that we won’t need to cancel school any more this school year and that June 5 will be our last day.

 

Health News from our Nurse

STAY DRY TO REDUSE CHANCES OF FROSTBITE

Frostbite results from the body’s attempt to protect itself against the cold.

When our skin gets very cold the blood vessels in and near the skin start to narrow.  If these blood vessels clamp down too much, this can cause dangerously low blood flow, particularly in our toes, fingers, ears and nose.  The combination of cold temperature and poor blood flow can cause frostbite.

To protect against frostbite——-

  • Dress in loose layers. The outermost layer should be wind resistant to reduce heat loss.  The inner layers of silk, polypropylene or wool will keep you warmer than cotton.
  • Keep yourself dry. Keep moisture away from the skin. Wet skin loses heat more easily.
  • Signs of frostbite on the skin may look waxy, white or lighter than usual, or it may appear pink or red.  It may feel overly soft, but as frostbite worsens, the skin may become hard.

Treatment——

  • Mild frostbite—gently blow air on the affected area, or place it against a warmer area of the body.
  • DO NOT  massage, use water warmer than 110 degrees or dry heat such as a radiator or hair dryer to warm the body.
  • Mild frostbite usually heals well without complications.
  • Severe frostbite may cause permanent tissue damage. Seek medical attention at an Emergency room as soon as possible.
