Dear SUPER Lincoln Lion Families,

Make a Wish
A York High School student asked if we would join her in the holiday Make a Wish campaign by writing letters to “Santa” or the “World” that she will send to Macy’s for the official program. If you would be willing to have your child participate, please have your child write a letter to “Santa” or the “World” and bring the letter to school by Wednesday, December 20th. We will collect all the Lincoln letters and deliver them to the York student. While the contents of the student’s email and request can be found in the previous newsletter, if you would like more information, please let me know!

January Popcorn with the Principal
Math is an open, creative subject that all students can learn to the highest levels. Participate in some open problem solving to see how your students are learning math and how that prepares them for college, career, and life. On Wednesday, January 17, 2018 from 6-7pm, Dave Beedy, Director of STEM education, will walk us through several creative problem solving activities that show the progression of EUREKA math skills. Please send me an RSVP by January 10 (jbarnabee@elmhurst205.org) if you plan to join us!

Illinois 5Essentials Survey
The fourth annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey opened on December 5. Students, teachers and parents across Illinois have the opportunity to participate. This survey will allow you and your child(ren), in grades 4 through 12, to share thoughts on important elements of school effectiveness at their school. It asks students about their experiences in school and parents about their experiences with their child’s school, giving school leaders critical input to help develop school improvement plans.

Elmhurst D205 is participating in the grades 4-5 pilot. For schools that reach 20% participation for parents and 50% for staff and students, reports will be sent to their districts in March 2018. Data will also be included in the State School Report Card. The survey will be open through January 18, 2018.

Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. Student participants will be required to log in using their student ID and birth date in order to complete the survey. Students’ identities will be completely confidential. Teachers or administrators will never see individual responses to survey questions and will only receive aggregated information, such as the total percentage of students who agree homework assignments help them learn the course material.

The parent survey takes about 10 minutes; the student survey about 25 minutes. To take the parent survey please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/  and select the appropriate survey to begin. A link is also provided on the Elmhurst D205 website. The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be conducted December 5 through January 18, 2018. I hope you will participate.

For more information about the Illinois 5Essentials Survey, or to view previous years’ reports, please visit https://illinois.5-essentials.org. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at 1-866-440-1874 or 5essentials@uchicago.edu.

School Closing Guidelines For Elmhurst District 205
As the temperature drops and we prepare for our first snowfall, it’s time to think about weather-related school closing guidelines. In the case of inclement weather, Elmhurst District 205 will only contact parents and staff when schools are closed. In general, IF there is no announcement by 5:45 AM via the following methods, schools are open: phone, email and SMS text message (if you’ve signed up for this feature) in both English and Spanish; the District 205 website - www.elmhurst205.org (when in doubt, check it out); the District 205 Facebook page - www.facebook.com/ElmhurstD205; the District 205 Twitter account -www.twitter.com/ElmhurstD205.

Additionally, you may visit the Emergency Closing Center website - www.emergencyclosings.com(District 205 schools are listed alphabetically as DIST #205 (ELMHURST PUBLIC SCHOOLS).

We suggest downloading the Know Before You Go flyer and keeping it handy in paper form, especially during the winter months. If power is out, you may not be able to access the Emergency Closings page of the District 205 website.

In general, District 205 will not close school on a forecast, i.e., the inclement weather must be real and present. In cases where the area is hit hard by snow, it might be possible to make a call in advance (usually in the evening of the day before). Most of the time, the decision must be made early in the morning, based on conditions that have presented themselves overnight.

Temperature is only one factor. Wind chill is also taken into account. Generally, when “real feel” temperatures are -30 degrees or colder, school will be cancelled for the sake of students who ride the bus or walk to school, as frost bite can occur quickly under such extreme conditions.

UPCOMING DATES
Tues. Dec. 19 – Elem Orchestra Concert at Bryan MS, 7pm
Wed. Dec. 20 – Make a Wish Letters to Santa or World due to Lincoln Office

It asks students about their experiences in school and parents about their experiences with your child’s school, giving school leaders critical student input to help develop school improvement plans.

On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:

  • Effective Leaders
  • Collaborative Teachers
  • Involved Families
  • Supportive Environments
  • Ambitious Instruction

Prior research in more than 400 schools has shown that schools that were strong on at least three of these “5Essential” indicators were 10 times more likely to improve student learning gains in math and reading than those that were weak on three or more Essentials.

All teachers, parents, and 4th through 12th grade students will be asked to respond to this survey. Reports will be sent to schools and districts in March 2018 and data will also be included in the State School Report Card.

Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child.  Student participants will be required to log in using their student ID and birth date in order to complete the survey.

The lunch will be held this Monday, November 20th and the menu is the same as last year -- Southtown Hotdog, fruit cup, ice cream and water. As it is not possible for the PTA parent volunteers helping at lunch to handle special requests or allergy concerns, if a family would prefer their child not to have a particular menu item we suggest that they pack and bring a different lunch from home. Permission slips are not being sent out this year. The office staff the nurse will not be supervising what students eat or do not eat. If there is a concern, the suggestion is to bring a lunch from home.

Make a Wish 
This week I received an email from a York High School student asking if we would join her in the holiday Make a Wish campaign by writing letters to Santa (or to the world) that she will send to Macy’s for the official program. If you would be willing to have your child participate, please have your child write a letter to Santa (or the world) and bring the letter to school by Wednesday, December 20th. We will collect all the Lincoln letters and deliver them to the York student. Here are the contents of the email with more details and a description of the program:

 

Dear Mrs. Barnabee, 
My name is …, and I am currently a junior at York High School.  I am emailing you, to ask for Lincoln´s help with a project for the holidays. 

 

A few years ago, my cousin, Gabriella …, was diagnosed with DIPG at the age of nine. DIPG is a type of brain cancer common in children. Her tumor was located on her brain stem, and due to the amount of nerves there, having an operation was too high risk. However, despite her condition, Gabriella was always thinking about helping others. Every year during the holiday season, Macy´s collects letters written to Santa.  For every letter written, Macy´s donates one dollar to the Make - A - Wish foundation. My cousin made it her mission to collect as many letters as possible, not only to give back to the foundation that granted her a wish, but to help bring joy to other kids. She received letters from schools, friends, family and from around the world - in the end, raising almost $250,000 for kids who deserve a wish. However, in October of 2013, Gabriella passed away at the age of 10.
 

Every year since her death, I've collected letters to bring to Macy´s to raise money to help grant other children wishes. Last year, I collected about 4,000 letters, and would love to surpass that number! Therefore, this year, I would like your help with getting the Elementary School students involved. I understand that your students are older, and some of them do not believe in Santa or celebrate Christmas - I actually do not celebrate Christmas myself, and neither did Gabriella. Yet, I think this cause, and this project, is a great way to teach students to think of helping others during the holiday season. 

If it wouldn't be too much trouble, could you please share my cousins' story and how this program helps to benefit and bring joy to kids their age who are battling a serious illness, and to have the students write letters to Santa? Once again, I understand religion could be a problem. Another idea is to instead have the students write a short letter on their wish for the world (not addressed to Santa Claus). Letters do not need to be in envelopes, nor do they need stamps. In the past, I have had students fold their paper into thirds, draw a stamp in the corner, and write “To Santa” in the middle. 

I would need the letters by the 20th of December; and I can pick them up from your school that day or sooner. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. 
 

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a happy, healthy, holiday season!

(York High School Student)
 

Again, if you would be willing to have your child participate, please have your child write a letter to Santa (or the world) and bring the letter to school by Wednesday, December 20th. We will collect all the Lincoln letters and deliver them to the York student.
