FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

 

May 2022

Dear Parents/Families,

How is it already the month of May?

This month brings many celebrations to our community (graduations, etc.) and the countdown to the end of the school year. Just the thought of some consistent warmer weather is something to look forward to. As we look ahead to the end-of-the school year, it is easy to get wrapped up in celebrations and start “day dreaming” of summer days ahead. The Medinah staff are committed to providing a sound academic focus, while we offer meaningful celebrations to close out the school year. Although the last day of school is June 2, we do want to make sure we take advantage of every learning opportunity possible before students leave for the summer. 

 As we get closer to the end of the school year, I wanted to keep you updated on events and some future initiatives around the district:
  • A new K-5 math program, Eureka Squared, will be implemented next school year for all K-5 students. Staff will be invited to participate in training in August. The updated IQWST science program will be used at Medinah Middle School. Parents will have an opportunity at curriculum nights to learn more about the new or updated programs.
  • Our teacher professional development committee has been meeting to plan the professional learning for the 22-23 school year. The focus of learning will be on mathematics, and best practices in supporting the growth of every student, every day.
  • Our district's annual budget is trending well, we are on target with our projected revenue and expenditures to date. 
  • Aligning with the Board’s Ten-Year Capital Plan for facilities this summer Medinah Middle School’s almost 50-year-old air handling unit will be replaced. This project has expected future energy savings costs, and air quality advancements. 
  • As a district, we look forward to getting more opportunities for parents and/or community members to get involved in helping our students, and staff. There will be more information sent out from the building principals regarding volunteering at each school. We may be looking for more parent support in the area of safety volunteers to help us in keeping our afterschool events spirited, fun and focused on children/adolescents.
  • The Board of Education is planning to host a Parent, Staff, Community, and Student Strategic Planning sessions kicking off in January of 2023.
    • The Board of Education will also be reviewing some opportunities to collect more data and input from the district’s stakeholders prior to January.
    • Please encourage community members who may not be on our electronic mailing list to join us by signing up at  [email protected]
    • If you know of someone who does not use technology to communicate, please call us so we may include them in communications.
If you are planning to have your child return to Medinah #11, please complete the required registration by June 1. If you have ideas on how to improve registration, please feel free to let us know.

On behalf of the Board of Education and our entire community, sincere gratitude to our Medinah #11 staff, as they are honored for their hard work, and dedication to the Medinah #11 children.

In closing, I ask that all parents and community members continue to work together to help keep all people safe within our wonderful community seven days per week. If you see something in the community which needs attention, please reach out to supports for help. Medinah #11 is grateful to work collaboratively with our local law enforcement agencies, to help us promote safe practices in our community at all times.

Thanks for your part in making Medinah #11 the place to be for all! 

Susan Redell  

Superintendent
