Welcome to Schiesher Elementary School
Please scroll down the page for more information and news.
Dear Schiesher Families,
WOW! We are nearing the end of the first trimester! How quickly time has flown! It’s time to put away the Halloween decorations and take out the Thanksgiving ones for display. Our first trimester ends on November 14th and Parent/Teacher conferences are right around the corner. Conferences will be held on November 24th and 25th. Signing up for conferences is done via the District website at www.lisle202.org. Please refer to the handout that is coming home with your student. Upon arrival for conferences there is no need to stop in the office as you are welcome to go directly to the teacher’s classroom. Each conference is scheduled for a specific time, and in consideration of others, teachers will stay on schedule. Just like when you consult with the pediatrician about your child’s physical health, it’s just as important to consult with your child’s teacher about academic subjects, social skills and emotional development. Remember, you and the teacher are a team—working together. Please remember that your attendance at conferences is important as we have found it to be the best way to let you know your son or daughter is doing in school. Also consider signing up to see the specials teachers as well. They love visiting with you and sharing news about your child.
If a conference is running long or more discussion is necessary, please remember that a meeting with your child’s teacher may be scheduled at any point throughout the school year. We welcome you to bring your student along to the conference and participate in the discussion. Knowing what is being taught at school lets you direct the conversation in your family to topics being studied in school. Such reinforcement of school work at home makes a big difference in your child’s understanding, motivation, and school performance. Consequently, those conversations at home that start like, “What did you do in school today?” can have more meaning and avoid the “Nothing.” answer!
The teacher’s will report out on your child’s progress as well as share strategies that are working to support your child’s learning that are beneficial both at home and at school. Please refer to “Tips for a Successful Parent-Teacher Conference” in this month’s newsletter.
Also this year District 202 will be looking for your feedback on our school climate survey. The survey only takes a few minutes to complete so we hope you choose to take it and give us your responses so we can continue to grow and make Schiesher the best place for kids to learn and grow! There will be laptops around the building so you can take the survey before or after your conference. Thank you ahead of time!
Thank you for your continued support and commitment to Schiesher School. Please do not hesitate to contact any member of our team. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday with family and friends!
