Current 5th Grade Families
As we begin to plan for next year, there will be a parent meeting for current 5th, 6th and 7th graders on Tuesday, November 27th at Bryan Middle School. The purpose of the meeting is to provide clarity on courses offered at the middle school level next year and to explain the course selection process and timeline. If you are unable to attend the meeting, the presentation will be available on our website.
5:30-6:30 p.m. for parents of current 6th and 7th graders
7:00-8:00 p.m. for parents of current 5th graders

SBRs – Standards Based Report Cards
As you anticipate your child’s first standards based report card, remember that student growth will be reported on a 4-point scale.  A “3” is the expected target and means that a student is demonstrating that standard with consistency and independence.  Some of the reporting standards are “year-long” and instruction related to that standard will continue throughout the entire school year.  For those year-long standards, it is perfectly appropriate for a student not to demonstrate proficiency (a “3”) in the first Trimester. More information can be found in the Parent Guide through this link: parent guide. Also, an email went out yesterday that gave directions for how to access your child’s SBR through PowerSchool. The letter with directions can be found on the Lincoln website.

PTA Annual Fun Lunch is on the way!
On Monday, November 19 the PTA will provide lunch to students. This year the order will come from the D205 Café and the menu will include cheeseburgers, apple slices, cookies, milk, water, and juice. While the menu is peanut free, unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate all allergies. For parents uncomfortable with the Fun Lunch, please send a lunch to school with your child on Monday.

U.C.C.A. Holiday Food Drive until Nov. 16
All Lincoln students and families are invited to help fill holiday food boxes by bringing donations to school between October 22nd – November 16th, 2018. There also will be collection bins at the Elmhurst Public Library, the YMCA, and park district locations until November 25th.  The donations will then be picked up and moved to the Elmhurst Public Works Garage where it will be sorted and boxed for distribution in December.

To help prepare you for understanding your child’s progress and accessing PowerSchool for your child’s Standards-Based Report Card, I wanted to share these hints and directions.

As you know Elmhurst D205 has made changes to the way we teach and report student progress. As I made you aware during Curriculum Night, way back in August, we have made the switch to Standards Based Reporting. This means that we are teaching the Illinois State Standards and measuring student progress on those standards with four categories. We are using the analogy of riding a bike to understand what each of the categories mean.

4 – Exceeds the Standard – You are a BMX rider popping wheelies.

3 – Proficient with the Standard – You can ride your bike independently around the neighborhood.

2 – Approaching the Standard – Help is needed by someone holding you balanced on the bike.

1 – Beginning the Standard – Training wheels are attached to your bike to provide support as you are learning to pedal, steer, and stay balanced.

More information about how we are reporting out progress can be found in the Parent Guide through this link: parent guide.

Also new this year is the way parents can access their child’s SBR for the first trimester. Your child’s report card will be available for viewing after 3:00 PM on Friday, November 16. You will be able to print your child’s report card if you choose. Additionally, your child’s teacher will have a printed copy available during conferences.  If you do not have access to a computer, please contact our office and we’ll be happy to print a copy for you.

Below you will find the instructions to retrieve your student(s) report cards:

  1. Sign in to PowerSchool

  2. Under the Navigation pane select Report Cards

  3. After you select Report Cards, a list of available report cards will appear

Hillside Car Line and Fairfield Waiting Parents
Please help our Safety Patrol and staff by staying in your cars and keeping the car line moving. Please help your child learn to open the car door, to get himself or herself into the car themselves, and to close the door themselves. Students should only enter the car on the sidewalk side, not on the street side. Please move away from the line as quickly as you can, as soon as your child is safely in your car. As we head into more difficult weather, snow, slush, rain, we will have more challenges and the more independent your child can become with this process the safer and smoother the process can be. Thank you for your help and patience!!

Annual Parent Workshop
Good Fences for Good Parenting: Setting and Maintaining Healthy Boundaries with our Kids. Just like the old saying “good fences make good neighbors,” good fences also make for good parenting. In this workshop, parents will learn about the balance between “helicopter” and “free-range” parenting, and that discipline is about teaching our kids how to live their lives in healthy, safe, and productive ways. The workshop will discuss ways to help parents create limits that support children’s natural need for exploration and our natural need to protect them. From using technology and social media to maintaining emotional regulation, this workshop will be packed full of useful guidance for parenting today. 

This free event will be at Sandburg Middle School - Auditorium (345 E. St. Charles Road, Elmhurst, IL 60126) on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 from 12:30-2:30pm (Q & A 1:45-2:30pm). Reservations are not needed and light refreshments will be offered.
