  • State Testing in April

    Posted by Malee Farmer on 3/12/2019

    Parent/Guardians,


    We will begin state testing when we return from spring break. Jefferson is scheduled to take the new state test, Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR), on April 3rd, 4th, and 5th. The 8th grade students take an additional test, Illinois Science Assessment (ISA) on April 23rd. To minimize the impact on instruction, please try to make sure your student is in attendance on these days. If your student is ill, please make sure to call the student in. The student will be scheduled for a make-up test.


    We appreciate your partnership in making sure students are ready for the test. Please make sure students get a good night’s rest and eat breakfast in the morning. The attached letters include more information.


    Thank you,
    Malee Farmer
    Assistant Principal



    Padres/tutores,


    Vamos a tener las pruebas estatales cuando regresemos de las vacaciones de primavera. Jefferson tendrá que tomar la nueva prueba estatal para evaluar el grado de preparación, Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR, siglas en inglés), los días 3, 4 y 5 de abril. Los alumnos de 8º grado tomarán una prueba adicional de ciencias, Illinois Science Assessment (ISA, siglas en inglés) el 23 de abril. Para minimizar el impacto en la instrucción, intenten que su hijo esté presente en estos días. Si su hijo está enfermo, asegúrense de llamar a la enfermería para notificarlo. El alumno tendrá un examen de recuperación.


    Apreciamos su colaboración y ayuda para que los alumnos estén listos para la prueba. Por favor, asegúrense de que sus hijos descansen bien y desayunen por la mañana. Las cartas adjuntas incluyen más información.


    Gracias,
    Malee Farmer

  • Importance of Attendance

    Posted by Megan Ptak on 3/5/2019

    Dear Jefferson Families,

     

    As you know attending school regularly has a huge impact on a student’s academic success. Even as children grow older and more independent, families play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and in life.

     

    We realize some absences are unavoidable due to health problems or other circumstances. But, we also know that when students miss too much school— regardless of the reason – it can cause them to fall behind academically. Your child is less likely to succeed if he or she is chronically absent—which means missing 18 or more days over the course of an entire school year. Research shows:

    • By 6th grade, chronic absence is a proven early warning sign for students at risk for dropping out of school.
    • By 9th grade good attendance can predict graduation rates even better than 8th grade test scores.

    Absences can add up quickly. A child is chronically absent if he or she misses just two days every month! Clearly going to school regularly matters!

     

    In an effort to support positive attendance, we are implementing a new award for exceptional attendance. This award is called “A+ Attendance”. It will be given out each trimester for students who have absences equaling 1 or less days that trimester.


    Here are a few practical tips to help support regular attendance:

     

    • Make sure your children keep a regular bedtime and establish a morning routine.
    • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
    • Ensure your children go to school every day unless they are truly sick
    • Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.
    • Talk to teachers and counselors for advice if your children feel anxious about going to school.
    • Develop back up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, neighbor, or another parent to take your child to school.
    • If your student is sick and you are keeping them home, please contact out attendance line at 630-420-4747. When students are out, their parent/guardian must contact our office prior to 7:45am.

     

    Let us know how we can best support you and your children so that they can show up for school on time every day. We want your child to be successful in school! If you have any questions or need more information please contact your child’s school counselor.

     

    Sincerely,
    Mrs. Megan Ptak, Principal
    Mrs. Malee Farmer, Assistant Principal
    Mr. Eric Decker. Assistant Principal



    Estimadas familias de Jefferson,



    Como ustedes ya saben, asistir a la escuela con regularidad tiene un gran impacto en el éxito académico de un alumno. Incluso, a medida que los niños crecen y son más independientes, las familias tienen un papel clave para garantizar que los alumnos lleguen todos los días de una manera segura a la escuela y que entiendan el por qué es tan importante la asistencia para tener éxito en la escuela y en la vida.

     

    Comprendemos que algunas faltas son inevitables debido a problemas de salud u otras circunstancias. Pero, también sabemos que cuando los alumnos faltan demasiado a la escuela - independientemente del motivo - esto puede hacer que se atrasen académicamente. Si su hijo está ausente de forma crónica, es menos probable que tenga éxito- lo que significa que faltan 18 o más días en el transcurso de un curso completo. Los estudios muestran:

     

    • Para el 6º grado, la ausencia crónica es una señal comprobada de advertencia temprana de alumnos que corren el riesgo de abandonar la escuela.
    • Para el 9º grado, una buena asistencia puede predecir los índices de graduación incluso mejor que los resultados de las pruebas de 8º grado

     

    Las faltas pueden sumarse rápidamente. ¡¡Un alumno tiene ausencia crónica si pierde solo dos días de clases cada mes!!

     

    Para demostrar nuestro apoyo a la asistencia positiva, estamos implementando un premio nuevo por tener asistencia excepcional. Este premio se llama “A+ Attendance”. Se le entregará cada trimestre a los alumnos que tengan uno o menos días de faltas en ese semestre.

     

    Aquí tienen algunos consejos prácticos para ayudar a apoyar la asistencia regular:

     

    • Asegúrense de que sus hijos mantienen una hora regular para acostarse y establezcan una rutina por las mañanas.
    • Preparen la ropa que se vayan a poner y metan las cosas necesarias en las mochilas por la noche antes de acostarse.
    • Asegúrense de que sus hijos van a la escuela todos los días a no ser que estén realmente enfermos.
    • Eviten programar vacaciones o citas médicas cuando los niños tengan clases en la escuela.
    • Hablen con los profesores o consejeros académicos para que les den consejos si sus hijos tienen problemas y ansiedad por asistir a la escuela.
    • Desarrollen planes de emergencia para llegar a la escuela en caso de que surja algo improvisto. Llamen a un familiar, vecino u otro padre para que lleven a su hijo a la escuela.
    • Si su hijo está enfermo y se va a quedar en casa, por favor, póngase en contacto con la línea de asistencia llamando al teléfono 630-420-4747. Cuando los alumnos no asisten a la escuela, sus padres/tutores deben de ponerse en contacto con nuestra oficina antes de las 7:45 de la mañana.

     

    Déjenos saber cómo podemos apoyarlos mejor a usted y a sus hijos para que puedan llegar a la escuela a tiempo todos los días. ¡Queremos que su hijo tenga éxito en la escuela! Si tiene alguna pregunta o necesita más información, por favor, comuníquese con el consejero académico de su hijo.

     

    Les saludan atentamente,

     

    Mrs. Megan Ptak, directora
    Mrs. Malee Farmer, subdirectora
    Mr. Eric Decker, subdirector

  • Digital Citzenship Reminder

    Posted by Megan Ptak on 2/25/2019

    Dear Patriot Families,



    After an incident last week, which required extensive time and manpower to investigate, we felt it important to remind our school community of the importance of talking to your children about the appropriate use of technology and responsible digital citizenship.



    Each Jefferson student has signed an Acceptable Use Policy stating they understand that it is against district policy to access, submit, post, publish, text or display any defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, profane, obscene, sexually oriented, threatening, racially offensive, harassing, bullying or illegal activities. Violation of this policy will result in disciplinary action for any student who engages in such behavior.



    The Jefferson administration would greatly appreciate your support by talking to your child about the importance of using their Chromebook for school use only, and to remind them their digital footprint can follow them for years to come.



    As always, thank you for your support.

    • Join the math department in a scavenger hunt activity. The fun begins in Room 222.
    • In conjunction with their study of US History, the 8th grade Student Government will showcase a multitude of educational resources to help prevent the increasing numbers of slaves through trafficking, proving that slavery did not end with the Civil War in America. You can help raise awareness about the growing issue, and even help rescue women and children in the slave trade through your donations. There will be a bake sale, games, and other activities and tables open to learn more about trafficking.
    • Take a moment to browse through the Science Expo in the Learning Commons.

  • Winter Parent Teacher Conferences

    Posted by Malee Farmer on 1/25/2019

    As you already know, you can begin scheduling conferences January 24.  PTC Wizard will close for scheduling conferences on February 7th.   You will use your Infinite Campus portal username and password to log into PTC Wizard. Please refer to the PTC Wizard Parent Guide (PTC Wizard Guía para los Padres) for additional instructions. Anyone with limited computer access can receive assistance with conference scheduling by calling the school.

     

    If you need a translator for the Spanish language, please call Tomasita Alonzo at (630) 848-3964.  She is one of our administrative assistants and speaks Spanish. 

     

    Just a reminder that availability can fill up quickly.  If your student is performing well, please do not feel the need to sign up for a conference with every teacher.  The middle school concept of core academic teams means that all teachers communicate with each other.  If you only have concerns in one class, that teacher can communicate with the team.

     

    Haciendo la cita para su reunión

     

    Como usted ya sabe, a partir 24 de enero puede comenzar a hacer una cita para su reunión. El último día para hacer una cita para las reuniones  será 7 de febrero, ya que se cerrará PTC Wizard. Puede acceder a la página de PTC Wizard  en:https://naperville203.ptcwizard.com/parent/.  Para iniciar la sesión en PTC Wizard utilizará su nombre de usuario y la contraseña de Infinite Campus. Por favor, consulte la PTC Wizard Parent Guide (PTC Wizard Guía para los Padres) para obtener instrucciones adicionales. Cualquier persona con acceso limitado a un ordenador puede recibir ayuda para hacer una cita para las reuniones con los maestros llamando a la escuela al número de teléfono (630) 848-3964.

     

    Si necesita un traductor que hable español, por favor, póngase en contacto llamando a Tomasita Alonzo al número de teléfono (630) 848-3964, es una de las asistentes administrativas y habla español.

     

    Por favor, no olvide que la disponibilidad de las horas para las reuniones puede cubrirse rápidamente en el otoño. Si a su hijo le está yendo bien en la escuela, por favor, no se sienta obligado a pedir una reunión con cada uno de sus maestros. En la escuela media, el concepto de equipos académicos significa que todos los maestros se comunican entre ellos. Si solo le preocupa una de las asignaturas, ese maestro puede comunicárselo a su equipo.

Strategic Blueprint

  • District 203’s FOCUS 2020 Strategic Blueprint

    Posted by Superintendent Dan Bridges on 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
