PARCC 2018

The testing window for the 2018 Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) will be from April 2-20 for junior high students and April 9-20 for elementary students in District 54. Most students at our school will test from 4/9 to 4/17.  Students in grades 3-8 will participate in the English/language arts and the math assessments with most students in grades 7-8 taking the test online and most students in grades 3-6 taking the test through the paper-pencil version. This is the fourth year Illinois and District 54 have participated in the PARCC assessment. Since 2016, the exam has a simpler and shorter format to improve the testing process.

Our students in grades 5 and 8 will participate in the Illinois Science Assessment (ISA).  This exam consists of one online test which takes approximately one hour.  The assessment is aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards for Science incorporating the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), which were adopted in 2014. Most of our students will test on April 23rd.

This year’s results will allow you to see how your children are growing in their knowledge and understanding of the state’s learning standards. These assessments are simply one measure of academic progress that will provide us a sense of where we are succeeding and where we must improve.

You can help your children do their best on the test by:

  • making sure, if possible, that your children attend school on the day of testing;
  • ensuring your children get a good night’s sleep the night before testing;
  • providing breakfast on the mornings of testing;
  • reminding your children to ask the teacher questions if they don’t understand the test directions;
  • letting your children know that you have confidence in their abilities;
  • advising your children not to worry about the test, and to simply do their best.

Please contact me directly if you want additional information or have further questions about these tests.

We look forward to sharing the results with you once they are received later this year.

Baldy Bash 4/18/18

Join us on Wednesday, April 18th from 5:00-7:00pm to see all of the amazing Celebrate Reading and Writing books, wonderful student projects, participate in some engaging literacy activities with your family and try to spot our King Baldy the Eagle!

PBIS April Goal is Integrity

In April, we will be working on Integrity at Enders.  Help us meet our goal by reminding your child that integrity is when our behavior matches our values.  If you want to go further at home, consider reading Horton Hatches an Egg by Dr. Seuss, and discussing how Horton keeps his promise no matter what.  Another way to practice integrity is to teach your child to say to themselves: “I do the right thing – even when no one is watching.”  We thank you for your help!

Yearbook News

Yearbooks will be sold for $18.00 on May 16th & May 17th, during lunch.  They will be sold on a first come, first serve basis, while supplies last.  Please mark your calendars!

Sixth graders will have an opportunity to pre-order a yearbook. Order forms will be distributed in April.

Elementary Scholarship

As part of its commitment to life-long learning, the Schaumburg Township Council of PTAs (STC) offers scholarships for summer programs and camps to District 54 students currently in kindergarten through seventh grade who wish to broaden their education, talents and experiences.

Registration is encouraged so that your child can secure a spot in the camp/program you have put on the application.  If you choose to wait to see if you have received a scholarship, you run the risk of the camp/program that you have applied for being full or cancelled.

Changing of programs/camps will not be permitted once you have been notified that you have received the scholarship awards for the camp/program listed on your application.

Please submit the online application form or the printable application form and send all required documentation to your child’s school office by the date designated by your PTA/PTSA Elementary Scholarship Coordinator.  Required documentation should be placed in a sealed envelope, labeled STC Elementary Scholarship Application; please do not staple/tape/paperclip anything together.

A full and complete application must include all of the following:

  • Completion of ALL sections of the online form: 2018 Elementary Summer PTA Scholarship Online Application
  • A copy of the summer camp/program brochure with description (including cost information). Do not send entire catalog/website information.
  • A copy of the completed application/registration form (no exceptions)
  • A copy (not the original) of the parent/guardian PTA/PTSA membership card for the 2017-18 academic year, or written verification of PTA/PTSA membership from local unit membership chair or local unit president. (Parent/Guardian must be a PTA member at the school attended by the child applying for the scholarship.  Must be a PTA member by March 1, 2018).

Please note that any application not meeting all of the criteria will be disqualified. No materials will be returned.

Scholarships will be awarded for the full cost of the summer program/camp up to $125.

  • All scholarship checks will be forwarded directly to the summer program/camp.
  • One application may be submitted per student.
  • No household will be awarded more than one scholarship each year.
  • No student will be awarded a scholarship for more than two consecutive years.

The summer program or camp must start on or after June 1, 2018 and be completed by September 1, 2018. To comply with the Bylaws of PTA, to be “noncommercial, nonsectarian, and nonpartisan,” a camp with the purpose of religious instruction will be ineligible for a scholarship.

All candidates will be notified of committee decisions by the beginning of May, 2018.

Scholarship recipients are encouraged to notify STC describing the benefits of having attended the camp/program for which the scholarship is received.

Please note that this program is not the same, nor is it affiliated with the Schaumburg Township Elementary School Foundation Memorial Scholarship Grant program.
