PARCC Testing

This past Friday brought an end to our state test for the 2016/17 school year.  We were so proud of our students.  They worked hard throughout the entire testing window and they really did follow through on their commitment to give it their very best.  Thank you for making sure your child made it to school on time, well rested and well nourished.  Your support definitely made a difference for your child.  We look forward to seeing the results in the upcoming months.

Notes of Encouragement

Last week, all parents were sent a letter from our staff with notecards enclosed.  The purpose of the letter is to elicit your encouragement for the upcoming MAP testing. Please take a moment to write your child a quick note to let them know how proud you are of him/her and how you know they will commit to giving their very best on the upcoming MAP test.  Your words speak volumes, and we know your child will treasure your hand-written card.  Once you write it, please seal the envelope and send it back to school with your child.  If you would rather, you could also drop the note off in the school office. If you have more than one child at Aldrin, we included additional notecards to ensure you are able to communicate with each of your students.  Please do not forget to put your child’s name on the envelope.  Your child will have an opportunity to open your note on the first day of their MAP test.  We can’t wait to see your child’s smile as they read your heartfelt words.

Spring MAP Testing

All Aldrin students will participate in the last testing session for MAP.  The MAP testing window opens on May 8th.  Your child’s teacher will communicate the actual testing dates for your child.  Again, we really want to encourage our children to try their very best.  Since these results are immediate, we are able to take the results and use the information to make plans for next year including class placements.

Reminder for Residency Renewal For All Families and Infinite Campus Parent Portal Information

Please do not forget, it is time to register for the 2017–18 school year.  On April 3, parents whose students will attend a District 54 school next year were mailed registration instructions for the 2017–2018 school year.

To complete the registration process, all District 54 families are required to prove residency annually at the time of registration.  For a list of documents needed to fulfill residency requirements, please click here.   All documentation provided must be current, valid for 2017-2018, and reflect name and address within the boundaries of District 54.

Parents are encouraged to complete this process online through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. The portal is a website where parents and guardians can log in and view information about your children’s grades, assignments, immunizations, test scores, demographic information and much more. You will be able to pay your fees and upload your proof of residency through the parent portal (although paper copies will still be accepted at our schools as well).

Please be sure to register by Monday, May 1, 2017  to ensure your child is placed on a class list for next year.  If you have questions, please call the school office.

Principal’s Message April 14, 2017

Good morning,

We are heading into quite a busy time at Aldrin School.  For the next two weeks, our third through sixth grade students will be able to take what they have been learning all year and put it to paper as they participate in the PARCC test.  Our staff is eager to watch our students excel on this state test.  Our students are well prepared for the assessment, and it’s a great opportunity for the children to show what they know.  Please ensure your child is well rested and nourished throughout the testing window.  Overwhelmingly, the research shows when people eat well and get plenty of sleep; the clarity of their thinking is at its peak, and they have more ability to sustain focus. It is also imperative to have your child at school on time during the testing window.  Thank you in advance for helping provide the very best learning environment for your child.

Have a fabulous day!

Fondly,

Mary Botterman and Tracy Langlais

IMPORTANT Registration News for the 2017-18 School Year

It is hard to believe it is time to register for the 2017–18 school year.  Recently the District 54 School Board revised its policy on registration. New for this upcoming year, every family who enrolls their child in a District 54 school will be required to prove residency on a yearly basis. This includes families who currently have their children enrolled. For a list of documents needed to fulfill residency requirements, please click here.   All documentation provided must be current, valid for 2017-2018, and reflect name and address within the boundaries of District 54.

Parents are encouraged to complete this process online through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. The portal is a website where parents and guardians can log in and view information about your children’s grades, assignments, immunizations, test scores, demographic information and much more. You will be able to pay your fees and upload your proof of residency through the parent portal.  If you prefer, you can still come into the Aldrin office to prove residency and pay your fees. Please be sure you complete the registration process by May 1, 2017 to ensure your child’s placement on a class list.

In addition, we are launching a new online report card for the third trimester. Everyone who has a portal account will be able to see their child’s report cards online by June 5, whereas the hard copies won’t be mailed until June 14.  All parents and guardians who have not previously created a portal account, but have supplied District 54 with an email address, should have received an email the first week of April, with a direct link to sign up for the portal. If you did not receive an email, but would like to create a portal account, please contact our office.

The Schaumburg Police Department recently notified us that they will be participating in an evidence training exercise on April 20 at a house near our school on Boxwood Drive. We wanted to forward the information on to you so you are aware of the purpose for the police presence and to calm your nerves if you were to notice them in the neighborhood.
