Dear Parents and Families, 

Our Medinah #11 staff members have been enjoying getting to know your child and you, the parent/family. Thank you to all parents/families who attended the curriculum nights to learn more about academic and behavior expectations. We hope that you understand what your child will be learning throughout the school year. This is just one way, together, we work towards meeting one of Medinah’s Core Values of shared responsibility among student, family, school, and community. This is more important now than ever before as schools and communities across the county, state and nation struggle with staff shortages and other issues. 

Another way we share responsibility is by reinforcing expectations for academics and behaviors. We start strong by sharing our expectations. Staff are committed to teaching, modeling, practicing, and supporting academic and behavioral expectations in all settings. We value our families for their support in understanding and reinforcing the district’s academic and behavior expectations in every setting from the classroom to extra-curricular/sporting events. 

Shared responsibility is also demonstrated by parents and teachers engaging together at parentteacher conferences. Parent-teacher conferences will be held in early October. Our goal is to have 100% of our parents/families attend conferences. Please schedule your conference here

Volunteering in our schools and within the community is another activity to support our partnership. If you plan to volunteer, please be sure to attend the Parent Volunteer Meeting on Thursday, September 22, 6:00 p.m., at Medinah Middle School. An overview of the volunteer program will be shared, it is mandatory that all parent volunteers complete the Volunteer Information Form and Waiver of Liability. All volunteers will receive a mandated background screening. 

Please review these important reminders:

  • All visitors must report to the school office, sign-in and present identification;
  • The district will continue using Instant Connect as a communication tool and asks parents to update the information (phone numbers, emails, etc.) as needed with the school office; 
  • Be sure to order lunches each week by Wednesday evening by visiting mymealorders; 
  • Parents are invited to all three buildings to serve as parent-volunteers. If you cannot make it during the school day, let us know, we are confident we can find other avenues for your time and talents.  
  • Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a wonderful organization and needs your support. Please contact the PTO [email protected] if you are interested in volunteering.  

Medinah #11 takes our shared responsibility seriously. We look forward to seeing you as a PTO school/classroom volunteer, and at parent-teacher conferences so we can work together to meet your child’s own academic and social learning targets!  

As a special thank you to honor our shared responsibility, the Medinah Board of Education, staff and Medinah PTO have provided each family with a Medinah #11 blue tote bag, which includes a calendar magnet, important emergency information, and a message from the PTO. Bags will be sent home this week with the oldest student of each family.
