This survey was designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school. As of now, we only have two parents who have completed the survey. Link for parents to take the survey: http://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/
Skylar earned a Cardinals Care ticket for being respectful and helpful to our substitute yesterday in Kindergarten! The kids have a chance to get caught being good by any adult in the school who catches them being respectful. They can turn one part of their ticket in to go to lunch 5 minutes early and the other portion to be kept in a collection bucket for a school wide drawing for prizes on November 15 and again on December 20! #cardinalscaretickets
