Welcome to Tate Woods Elementary School
Dear Tate Woods Families, April 2016
April is here and I hope you all have had a nice spring break. With only two months left and many things to do, we are off to work.
During April and early May, students will participate in the third and final session of NWEA-MAP testing. This assessment provides information on how each student is performing and gives information to the teacher about skills that would be most beneficial for that student as they moving ahead in reading and math. For more parent resources on NWEA-MAP, please visit… https://www.nwea.org/assessments/resources-for-parents/.
Teachers will also read with each student individually using a running record. This assessment allows the teacher to 1) compare a student’s reading ability and behaviors to a benchmark and 2) plan targeted instruction for that individual student to grow as a reader.
2016-2017 School Year:
Planning for next school year has begun. Teachers and administrators are working together to build class lists for the coming school year over the next few months and into the summer. Students will receive a letter by mail in August sharing their teacher’s name, a welcome letter and additional information about the first day of school.
Parents of students entering 3rd grade may direct any questions to Mrs. Lind or Mrs. Dineen at Schiesher. Their contact number is 630-493-8100.
Full Day Kindergarten Information
Lisle District 202 students who will be five by September 1, 2016 are eligible to take advantage of our full day Kindergarten program beginning in the 2016-2017 school year. More information about this program can be found at:
Students entering 1st grade from private Kindergarten:
Students who will be entering Tate Woods as first graders are welcome to attend our Step Up Day on May 19th. Please call our Tate Woods office at 630-493-8050 to register. We welcome you to your new school!
On April 12th and 14th, 1st and then 2nd graders will welcome their families into their school to see their work. This evening is an opportunity for your child to show you around their learning environment. The evening will run 6:30-8pm. Stop by to visit the classroom and see student work. There is no group presentation, so you may stop by anytime within the timeframe. Remember to leave time to visit our BOGO book fair! There are great deals on books!
Beginning April 5th, students who do not have the resources to have breakfast at home will be able to have a cold cereal breakfast here at school. Any student who needs breakfast will come off the bus or inside from the entry line early and have a quick, cold breakfast. Students will not arrive early for breakfast. This program is sponsored by the Woodridge Community Pantry who donates the cereal and milk. We are fortunate to have such supportive sponsors who help us make sure that every child at Tate Woods starts their day with breakfast. Families who can should still provide their child with a breakfast at home if possible. Thank you.
