FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK
Dear Medinah Intermediate School Families,

 
 Medinah Primary School and Intermediate School students have been hard at work.  Teachers and staff have spent this year learning about Growth Mindset. Growth mindset is a concept developed by Carol Dweck from Stanford University. Intelligence is something that is developed. The brain can be grown and strengthened like a muscle that can be trained. Growth mindset is developed through hard work and dedication to learning.  We are working hard to help all of our students develop a growth mindset towards their learning and other aspects of their lives.
 
Kindergarten registration took place on March 8th.  If you have a kindergartener who will be attending Primary School next year, or know of a kindergarten or first grade student who will enroll at MPS for the first time next year, please call the school office at 630-529-9788. Second grade students at Primary School will be taking the InView Test the week of April 9th.  We know the students will do a great job!

The new Illinois state assessment, Partnership for Assessment Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) will be taking place from April 3rd through April 20th.  Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will be tested in the content areas of Math and English Language Arts (ELA). The PARCC assessment is designed to measure a full range of students’ knowledge and high-order skills focused on critical thinking, communicating effectively and problem solving. We appreciate your home school partnership by working with your child to make sure they are in attendance each day, arrive to school on time, eat a nutritious breakfast, get plenty of rest, and are encouraged to do their best. PARCC states have partnered with GreatSchools to launch the GreatKids Test Guide for Parents, a new resource to assist parents in helping their children prepare academically for college and careers, and for the next grade level. The guide can be found at http://understandthescore.org, a website dedicated to helping parents better understand their children’s scores, and also on the PARCC website http://www.parcconline.org/resources/parent-resources

We have sent home registration forms or visit our website to register online. We have also really enjoyed having our Watch D.O.G.S in the buildings. We are looking forward to having more male role models in to work with kids and support teachers. Go to the Medinah School District 11 website to sign up.

We hope that you have a wonderful spring break with your families! School will resume on Tuesday, April 3rd.  We look forward to hearing about all the fun the students had over break!
 
Sincerely,

Natalie Czarnecki
