    Dear Ann Reid Families,

    May is here!  We are enjoying the last few fun-filled weeks with your children in the building.  Please be sure to check the Ann Reid calendar for the times and dates of our special events!  We are especially looking forward to the Duckling Dash on May 23rd.  Please be sure to arrive early as parking is always limited on this day.  Our students are busy training for their run! 


    We have exciting news to share!  This week we learned that Ann Reid has been awarded the Governor’s Award of Excellence in the area of Linguistically and Culturally Appropriate Practices in Excelerate Illinois.  Over the past 15 months our team has completed learning modules and collected evidence in our classrooms of high-quality, culturally sensitive and appropriate early childhood practices for children with diverse learning styles.  We have learned so much, but know there is more we can do to embrace the rich languages and cultures our students bring to our amazing school each day.  Thank you to our parents who have volunteered their time to record stories and read vocabulary words in their home languages, as well as the many who shared information and artifacts in the classrooms about their cultures and many native countries.


    Enjoy the summertime fun and weather with your children.  We look forward to welcoming back many students and wish good luck to our graduates moving on to Kindergarten this fall!



    Mrs. Allen

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
