    News from Katy Lynch, Principal

    April 11, 2017


    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.

    • All students will be photographed individually.
    • NO MONEY is needed on picture day.
    • Shortly after picture day, your child will bring home 2 proof images, an order form, and instructions for ordering.

    More information will be coming home soon.



    Flower Sale

    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.



    Volunteer Luncheon

    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:

    • Making sure, if possible, that your child attends school on the days of testing and arrives on time.
    • Making sure your child gets a good night’s sleep the night before testing
    • Providing breakfast on the mornings of testing.
    • Reminding your child to ask the teacher questions if he/she does not understand the test directions.
    • Letting your child know that you have confidence in his/her ability to do his/her best.
    • Advising your child not to worry about the test, just do the best he/she can.



    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

    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.



    Happy Retirement!

    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!

Strategic Blueprint

  • District 203’s FOCUS 2020 Strategic Blueprint

    Posted by Superintendent Dan Bridges at 6/27/2014
    FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
    FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
    The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
    1. Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
    2. Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
    3. Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
    4. Effective communication and community relations.
    Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
    District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting.  To watch that presentation, please click here
