    Dear Ann Reid Families,

    October is upon us and fall weather is too!  Autumn is a season that we enjoy as preschool educators; as it gives us many opportunities to teach about weather, changes in our environment and harvest time.  We are looking forward to the Ann Reid Pumpkin Patch returning during the week of Halloween, where every child will get a chance to “pick” their own small pumpkin from our field behind the school and take it home.  We will also have our Halloween Parade on Thursday, October 29th, where parents can join in on the fun and watch the students parade in costume if they choose.

    Our teachers and staff are busy preparing for parent-teacher conferences, where we look forward to sharing all the learning and growth we have seen in your children already this school year!  Ann Reid is bustling with activity, laughter, movement and new learning, and we love every minute of it!  Thank you to all our families for helping us with a smooth start and new friendships as we partner in your children’s early education.  

    Tarah Allen, Principal

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.
    FOCUS 2020 was first presented to the Board of Education at its May 5th, 2014 meeting. To watch that presentation, please click on this link and find the May 5, 2014 meeting.
    The final draft of the Blueprint and Action Plans will be unveiled at the Fall FOCUS 203 Community Forum, which will be held on September 17 in the evening at Naperville Central High School and September 18 in the morning at Grace Methodist Church.
