Principal's Newsletter

  • April 2017

    Posted by Nick Micensky at 4/7/2017

    Dear Parents,

     

    Registration for the 2017-2018 School Year

    Registration packets for students who will be entering grades 1-5 next year will be sent home in student backpacks the week of April 3, 2017.  Detailed instructions are included in the packet. All registrations are due back to school no later than Friday April 21, 2017.

     

    Retirements

    We have four staff members retiring at the end of this school year.  Mrs. Petras, fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Baker, school nurse, Mr. Zitko, orchestra director, and Mr. Micensky, principal, will retire at the end of this school year after rewarding careers.  The Home and School Association is planning an open house in May one day after school to honor our retirees. Please watch for more information.

     

    Class Lists

    Since this is the last newsletter until the end of May please note the following information that I usually send out regarding the placement of students on a class lists for next year. In addition to creating classes that are balanced academically, we try to pay attention to other factors such as combinations of students as well.  We are counting on parents to trust our judgment when constructing class lists.  The vast majority of parents do just that. If you do feel the need to make a request, please keep the following in mind:

    • Whenever possible, requests to not have a certain teacher are honored.  I stress the phrase “whenever possible,” because sometimes it is not.
    • Requests for a certain teacher or classmate are frequently difficult to honor without upsetting the balance of the class lists.  I would not encourage you to do this, and I do not make any guarantees in this regard.
    • Instead, consider describing the type of teacher your child would benefit from.  We will do our best to find a good match.
    • Requests should be put in writing to me before the end of the current school year.  The earlier the better.

     

    I would like to stress that I am not encouraging you to make a request regarding next year’s teacher. I am encouraging you to trust our judgment. I thought you might appreciate knowing some of the thinking that goes into constructing class lists.  We put a great deal of thought and planning into placing children in classes and strive to make decisions that are good for all.

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
