DLI-5th Grade Parent Information Nights
Dear Meadow Glens Families,
The season of spring now seems to be with us to stay for a while. Most of us enjoy this time of growth and change that takes over our landscape. It seems fitting then, to announce a change that is occurring for me professionally. One week ago, the District 203 Board of Education approved my appointment as a Director of Student Services. I am excited and honored to accept this new role, serving a larger portion of D203 students. However, I would be disingenuous if I didn't share that I leave my position as Meadow Glens' Assistant Principal with mixed emotions. Our students, families, and staff have taught me and helped me to grow, and for that I am very thankful. The Meadow Glens community is unique in its ability to support and cheer one another. I will most certainly miss that sense of togetherness. Thank you once again for sharing part of my life's journey in ways that were so impactful and memorable.
Spring School Pictures are Tomorrow!! (Wednesday, April 12)
The remaining school pictures for 2016-2017 will be taken by a new vendor, HR Imaging Partners.
More information will be coming home soon.
Think Spring! On May 4th, the front lawn of Meadow Glens School will be littered with gorgeous plants and flowers. Instead of looking on with envy, you can take some home to enjoy all summer. If you didn’t place your order for flowers, you can come to the last chance sale on the morning of Friday, May 5th.
We invite you to attend our All Star Volunteers Luncheon on Tuesday, April 25th. Join us in the LC from 11:00am-12:45pm so we can formally thank you for all you have done to support our children and our school. You’ll have an opportunity to chat with friends and neighbors and visit with a teacher or two as well. We hope you will be able to attend.
5th Grade Showcase
The date has been finalized for the 5th Grade Musical “Pirates”. Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 10th. Parents and families are invited to join their students for the performance from 1:30-2:15pm in the gym. Mr. Benyo, Ms. Shaner and Ms. Wysocki, along with the 5th grade team will be supporting and preparing your students for this memorable event.
Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)
We will be beginning the mandatory state PARCC testing on April 17th.
You can help your child do his/her best on the test by:
Last Day of School 2016-2017
Barring any unexpected situations (weather or otherwise) which would cause us to delay the final day of school for the 2016-2017 school year, the last day of school will be Thursday, May 25, 2017. The last day of school is a full school day 8:15am-2:30pm.
Looking for Five-Year-Olds
We are continuing to add to our list of potential kindergarten students. We hope that there are many more five year old students who did not attend kindergarten preview or have registered. A child will be eligible for kindergarten if he/she is five years old by September 1st and lives in our attendance area. All students are required to provide proof of residency. Whether you are a current District 203 family or you are enrolling your first child, we look forward to welcoming you and your kindergarten student for the 2017-2018 school year!
Summer learning in Naperville 203 offers something for every student, whether seeking to support core learning to maintain academic growth or enriching learning in areas not traditionally covered during the school year. Summer learning experience is designed for six weeks, June 5-July 14. Parents may register students for one or both three-week semesters. Visit the district website for more information or call (630)637-7346.
Spring Registration/ School Supply Kits
Completed Registration packets are due back to the schools no later than April 22, 2017. Check the registration packet for instructions on how to order a complete 2017/2018 school supply kit if you wish to order through H&S. The school supply kits include everything your student needs for the first day of school. No shopping or wondering if you have the right supplies. The school supply kits are shipped directly to Meadow Glens and will be distributed approximately one week before school begins. Look in the summer mailer for the pick-up date.
We have three staff (Kathy Angelos, Bev Wysocki, and Don Massengill) that will be retiring at the end of this year. We will truly miss the dedication and expertise that these staff members bring to Meadow Glens. We hope that the next chapter of their lives brings them happiness and is as fulfilling as the first. We will miss you!
