Dear Schiesher Families,
March was a very productive month here at Schiesher Elementary School with so many activities and events that involved our students: band concert, basketball with our Lisle Police Department, PARCC Spirit Week, art show events, Red Hot Read, dental program to name a few. Our third through fifth grade students took the PARRC and I am proud to say that 100% of our students completed the tests! Thank you for all of your encouragement and working with us on having your child attend school and planning appointments around the test. We truly appreciate your teamwork! Look for the results in the fall.
A huge thank you to our LEHSO for another successful Spring Clothing Resale. This is a great event for our community and moreover our students who benefit from the funds raised. We truly appreciate the volunteers who donate so much of their personal time to ensure the success of the event. They also supported our students during PARCC with healthy snacks and water. There are so many things we are able to do and our students directly benefit from due to the commitment of our LEHSO.
As we are in the midst of our third trimester we continue to work diligently with our students on meeting academic and social goals. We are thrilled to report that many students have moved out of interventions. This is due to their hard work at school and the support they receive at home. Parent partnership is vital to student success. Encouragement at home goes a long way. As we walk down the path of life, each of us walks his or her own very special way. Some us taking big steps. Some need to take smaller steps. Some of us run and rush down the path while others of us “mosey” down the path. Some of us take those steps with great confidence while others may be a bit more tentative and cautious. No matter how each of us takes the journey, each footstep moves us closer to our goals and our dreams. As parents, teachers, guardians, and mentors to our children – it is our responsibility to assist our children in making those right choices and guide them to their own unique style in reaching their goals. Review your children’s work, contact the teacher and ask what else can be done at home to support their academic growth. By reinforcing school expectations you demonstrate to your child that we work as a team. We want to help our students make the final trimester as productive as possible. Together we make a difference for the children in our community.
During April and May students will participate in the final round of MAP testing and the second round of PARCC testing. See our school calendar for dates. While assessment is important to measure student growth, it is also important for our professional community to measure the implementation of our curriculum. One assessment score does not define a student. We know that measuring student growth occurs over time on multiple measures. We also know that assessment does not define who a child is as there is so much more to children than scores. We love watching our students learn and grow in so many other areas. Thank you for sending us such terrific kids!
As Spring Break is around the corner, I hope that everyone has a relaxing and safe break. We look forward to warm weather and a fantastic spring term filled with enriching learning opportunities for all. Please do not hesitate to contact anyone here at Schiesher School if we can assist you in any way.
Together, let’s make it a great month! …… Sincerely, Beth Lind Principal
