5 Essentials Survey
Many parents were able to complete the 5 Essentials survey at conferences-thank you!
If you did not have a chance to do so at school, please see the info and link below:
Parents, students and teachers across Illinois will once again have an opportunity to participate in the annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school as it relates to the important elements of school effectiveness.
On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by the University of Chicago. All survey responses will be kept confidential. The state will provide survey results for individual schools only if a school has at least 20 percent of parents take the survey. If you have children attending more than one school, we ask that you complete the survey for each school.
To take this short survey:
1. Visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/
2. Type and select “Dupage” as "County." (The county is the location of the school district's main office, not the school.)
3. Type your school's name into the "School" field and select your school.
The Illinois 5Essentials Survey identifies five indicators that can lead to important student outcomes, including test score gains. Research has shown that schools strong on these indicators are ten times more likely to improve student learning. The five indicators that effect school success are effective leaders, collaborative teachers, involved families, supportive environments, and ambitious instruction.
Parents need to call the attendance line when their child is going to be absent from school. Please call 428-7400 and select option #3. You may call this number anytime, but please do so before 9:30 am on the day of the absence.
The Fry Staff is once again planning our annual Thanksgiving food drive to benefit local families. We will collect food all NEXT week, Nov. 12-16th. Please see the attached flyer for more info.
