Dear Families,

The students and staff have been very busy for the past month and have many exciting learning opportunities to look forward to.

During the past few weeks, the students at MPS and MIS have been taking their Reading and Math Map tests. We are all very proud of them for trying their best and working hard to achieve their goals they have set for themselves. Teachers are excited to be reviewing these results with you at conferences.

We are looking forward to all of our families attending Parent-Teacher Conferences coming up on Thursday, February 14 and  Friday, February 15. We are excited to see the students attend the conferences to continue to work as a team towards a successful 2018-19 school year! Just a reminder that kindergarten conferences are for parents only.

Throughout the next few months, the staff and students at Medinah Intermediate School will be focused on preparing for the upcoming Illinois Assessment of Readiness(IAR) for grades 3-12, which will take place in April. The teachers and students have and will continue to focus on their learning goals, as well as practice Reading and Math sample test questions. Practice test questions are available to access at home at https://parcc.pearson.com/practice-tests/. More information will continue to be sent home about this assessment.

Preschool Screening will take place on February 22nd.  Please call the Primary School office to set up an appointment!

Medinah Primary School will be having Kindergarten Registration for the 2019-2020 school year on March 7th from 9am-11am, 2:00-3:00 pm and 6:00 pm-7:30 pm at Medinah Primary School.  Students who will be 5 on or before September 1, 2019 is eligible for kindergarten next year.  Please spread the word to your Medinah friends! It is always exciting to welcome our new students and families to our district.

The weather has been bitterly cold! Students may be spending more time inside.  Use this opportunity to have kids continue to reinforce their reading and math skills through programs such as IXL or Raz Kids!

We are looking forward to the month of February. As always, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Teachers, parents and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey: Organizing Schools for Improvement. The Illinois 5Essentials Survey is an Illinois State Board of Education initiative designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. The University of Chicago is conducting the survey on behalf of the State Board of Education. District 11 teachers and students in grades 4-8 will complete the survey during the regular school day


District 11 parents may visit www.5-essentials.org/illinois to complete the Illinois 5Essentials Parent Survey starting October 23, 2018 through February 15, 2019.

Your participation in the Survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. However, District 11 will ONLY receive the survey results if at least 20 percent of parents respond to the survey. Your identity and responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. We strongly encourage our parents to participate, as the feedback generated from the survey will only help us to focus our improvement efforts.

For more information about the Illinois 5Essentials Survey, please visit https://5-essentials.org/illinois/5e/2018/. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at 1-866-440-1874 or 5essentials@uchicago.edu.

Thank you,

Dr. John K. Butts
