March Principal's Message
March 3, 2011
March…In like a lion, out like a lamb.
It seems like February passed by in the blink of an eye, and I, for one, am looking forward to sunshine and brighter days! March will be a very busy month for all of us. We begin this month with ISAT testing in our 3
grades. Please encourage your child to do his or her best, eat a healthy breakfast and get plenty of rest during the testing weeks (and always!). The Illinois Standard Achievement Test measures individual achievement relative to the Illinois Learning Standards. To learn more about these assessments, visit the Illinois State Board website at
. Tests will be administered March 1 – March 11th. Thanks to the Home and School for providing a healthy snack for our kids during the testing.
Our Open House/Conference Night was a big success. Students were able to showcase their work and progress, engage in fun learning activities and talk with teachers. Please contact your child’s teacher if you would like to further discuss your child’s progress.
Our annual Fun Fair will be held on March 12
from 11 am– 3pm. We look forward to another fun-filled day with family and friends. Please contact Kelly P. Patten at 630-554-6556, or Amanda Korber at 630-554-8384 if you are interested in volunteering.
Preparation is under way for our “Night of Champions” which will be held on Wednesday, March 16
from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. Please join us to celebrate our progress and to engage in fun and exciting learning activities.
The character pillar that we celebrate during the month of March is citizenship. Citizenship is represented by the color purple. Citizenship is demonstrated by working to make our school and community a better place, staying informed about important issues, being a good neighbor, obeying laws and rules, respecting authority and protecting the environment. Please encourage your child to wear either something purple, or Character Counts wear on Wednesdays.
: If you have a child who will turn 5 before September 1
, please register them for Kindergarten if you have not done so already. Encourage neighbors and friends to complete the registration process as soon as possible so we can plan and prepare for the 2011-2012 school year. For more information, please call the Central Registration office at 630-636-2404.
Please consult the district website for information on School Board elections and candidate forums.
The Oswego Police Department has placed a Smart Sign on Secretariat Lane to remind drivers to not park, stand, pick up or drop off students along Secretariat Lane. You may observe police presence at pick up and drop off times. I strongly encourage you to refrain from dropping off students at the cross walk and/or dropping students in the parking lot and allowing them to navigate through car traffic to get to the crosswalk. The police have been notified of these unsafe practices and will ticket. The safety of our children is first and foremost in enforcing these policies.
Have a wonderful and safe Spring Break!
