Dear Parents/Families,

     We can all agree that we are excited about warmer temperatures with clear and sunny days ahead. This month begins the start of the final trimester of school in Medinah for the 2022-2023 school year. With the start of trimester 3 comes a second round of student report cards. Seeing our students’ growth from an academic and social-emotional standpoint is a complete joy. Now more than ever, our students need to celebrate and reflect on their growth toward their personal learning and social-emotional goals. This is also a perfect time to help your child set their goals for Trimester 3. Be proud, Medinah Students!  

The Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) is around the corner for our Intermediate and Middle school students. Please spend some extra time reviewing the IAR practice problems in literacy and math with your child to help them get better acquainted with the rigor of IAR. Besides our core curriculum, staff also include test preparation daily to help understand the assessment format. Practice tests are available here

Thank you to all our parents and staff who completed the 5 Essentials Survey. This information is used to help improve our communication, engagement, and learning for our students and community. Goals and School Improvement Plans at each building are built upon various data points, and 5 Essentials is one of them. Click here to take the 5 Essentials Survey.  

     Lastly, our district needs certified substitute teachers, school nurses, bus drivers, and other crucial positions. Medinah #11 is partnered with Kelly Education Service, a leading provider of substitute teachers to school districts across the U.S., to manage our substitute program. If you know someone who may be interested, please share this information. Interested parties can contact our Human Resource Department at (630) 893-3737 ext. 1136.  

Thank you for your continued support of the students and staff of Medinah School District #11.

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 the Illinois 5Essentials Parent Survey

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 this link. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at 1-866-440-1874 oi[email protected]

Thank you,

Susan Redell
