    Happy New Year Ann Reid Families!  2016 and winter have officially arrived and we are busy planning for the second half of our school year.  Winter activities and playing in the snow is a lot of fun for our preschool children, despite the cold temperatures!

    Future winter dates and events: we are looking forward to hosting our families for Open House on February 4th from 6-7 pm.  Our students will surely be excited to show families all of their work and learning that takes place in the classrooms.  

    We are also preparing for our yearly Community program lottery and pre-registration for the 2016-2017 school year.  Please check out the information and attached form on our website for more information-we appreciate our current Ann Reid families spreading the word about our building programs to family, neighbors and friends that reside in District 203 and have preschool-aged children.  

    We are looking forward to beginning our next two building-wide units of study this winter and spring: Multicultural Authors and Construction.  Look for more pictures, book suggestions, vocabulary and parent-child activities related to these units from your classroom teachers in the near future.  

    In the meantime, don’t forget to get outside and have fun in the snow with your preschoolers!

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.
