    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    This month Steeple Run had a kick-off assembly to celebrate a unique opportunity to build our love of literacy.  One School reads One Book was made possible because of a generous gift from our very own Home and School! The oldest student in each family was given their own copy of The Lemonade War by Jaqueline Davies.  Everyone at Steeple Run and at home will have the opportunity to read the same book! Please take advantage of this special time to share in the enjoyment of reading with your child.

    We are announcing daily trivia questions related to the book during morning announcements.  Our pacing guide is located on our website.  Other recordings of the book can be found on the internet.   Throughout the building there will be various activities which will further enrich the reading experience. Please make sure that your family stays current with the reading so your child can enjoy all that we have planned. In conjunction with School Community  and Family Partnership we will follow up with a One School One Book Celebration scheduled for April 13 at 5:30 pm.  Additional video footage from our kick-off will be shared at that time and parents can enjoy planned activities in various grade levels.  If you haven’t had a chance, view the link below. This was part of the very fun assembly.

    Happy Reading!

    Debbie Doyle and Nancy Van Ness

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
