January 2017

Dear Schiesher families,

Welcome back!  I hope that everyone had a wonderful and safe break.  It is so great to see the students back and refreshed!

5Essentials Survey
I would like to thank all families that have taken the 5Essentials survey. Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at our school and guide improvement. In order for the school to receive the report, we need 20% of our Schiesher families to complete the report.  We are still in need of families to complete the survey so that we can get the results. You can click on the following link 5Essentials Survey or go to our website www.lisle202.org and the link will be on the right hand-side of the page.  We truly appreciate you taking the time to do this.

Winter Weather Reminder
Students will have OUTDOOR recess unless the temperature (with the wind chill) is below 0 degrees. Please send appropriate outdoor clothing including hats and mittens with your child to school.
    • If students wish to play in the snow, they must wear BOTH snow pants and boots. If students are not wearing snow pants and boots, they are required to stay on our blacktop surface of the playground for the lunchtime and classroom recess periods.
    • Students are not allowed to throw snowballs, slide on ice, or play other games where student safety may be compromised.
It is a great idea to keep an extra pair of socks, gloves or mittens in your child's backpack. Students have a great time playing in the snow when appropriately dressed and following these guidelines.

MAP Testing
Students will be taking the Winter MAP assessment for both reading and math starting on 1/13.  We continue to use the MAP assessment to help guide instruction, monitor student progress and continue to make instructional decisions for students.

Schiesher Behavior Expectations
Our students reviewed behavior expectations with our Paws Laws Shuffle.  5th grade students retaught the expectations to the rest of the students.  We have implemented a new system for students to get recognized when following our expectations here at Schiesher.  The students will receive Good Choice Tickets when they are caught being respectful, responsible and ready.  Students can put them in the prize boxes to win books, games with the principal, wearing a cape for the day and other prizes.

The Great Kindness Challenge
The students will be participating in the Great Kindness Challenge the last week of January.  The challenge is to see how many kind deeds they can do in one week.  Please talk with your child to see what acts of kindness he/she did that week and throughout the rest of the year.
On behalf of the entire staff, I would like to thank all the room parents for the wonderful winter parties as well as all the Schiesher volunteers that have help out this year so far!  We are so lucky to have all of your support! 


Warm Regards,
Melissa Payne, Principal
