Good afternoon,

We hope that everyone had a wonderful week!

6th Grade Celebration:

Please be sure to get your RSVP to the 6th Grade Celebration in by May 1st so our amazing committee is able to plan accordingly.

PARCC Testing: 

The end of the year PARCC testing will take place in the next two weeks for all 3rd  through 6th  grade students. As with any assessment, our students are much better able to show what they know if they get plenty of sleep the night before testing and a healthy breakfast the morning of testing.  Also, please make sure your child arrives at school on time during the testing.  Any child who arrives after the testing begins will be rescheduled for a make-up test at a later time. Thank you in advance for your continued support. The testing schedule is as follows:

 

April 29th  – Literacy Part 1 for 3rd through 6th grade

5th and 6th  – 8:45 AM

Registration:

If you have not had a chance to send back your school registration yet, please do so as soon as possible.  Having these forms will help us as we begin to make class placements for the upcoming year.  Also, if you have a neighbor with a child headed to kindergarten in the fall, please feel free to let them know that we are accepting registration for kindergarten during regular office hours.

Please read the attached Collins Clips3-6-15 Collins Clips for information on upcoming events and opportunities.

 

On Monday, March 9th, we will begin the state-wide PARCC assessment. We know that the students will put for their best effort and their scores will reflect the hard work and dedication that they’ve exhibited throughout the year.This should not be a stressful time for our students. Making sure they get enough sleep and have a filling breakfast will help a great deal.  Please help ensure your child gets to school on time.  Any student that arrives late to school will not be able to join their class in testing for that session.

 

PARCC Testing Schedule:

Dear Collins Community,

 

It has been another great week of learning at Collins.  Please ask your child about the fabulous interactive assembly we had on Tuesday with Mr. Steve Harpster. The students had fun drawing along with him using letters and numbers.  We hope that with the warmer temperatures in the forecast, the students can continue to enjoy the snow. Please read the attached Collins Clips for important information2-6-15 Collins Clips.

Information on Measles:

In light of the recent news regarding measles at a Palatine child care facility, District 54 is sharing with all families this Measles Fact Sheet from the Cook County Department of Public Health. At this time there have been no reported cases of measles in District 54. Should there be a case of measles at your child’s school; parents/guardians would be notified.

 

Measles is a highly contagious disease. However, more than 99% of our students are vaccinated against this disease and the measles vaccine is highly effective.

 

If your child is exhibiting symptoms of measles, has been exposed to measles, or has been diagnosed with measles, please notify us. In addition, all students should remain at home anytime they have a fever (100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater).

 

If you have specific questions about your child’s health, please contact your personal physician.

 

Valentine’s Day:

We will be having our classroom Valentine’s Day parties on Friday, February 13th from 1:30-2:30.  The PTA room representatives and party volunteers have been working very hard to plan fun activities for our students to enjoy during this time.  As a reminder, please do not send any treat bags or food items attached to cards in with your child to be passed out.  No food items will be going home with students.

As a way to continuously improve, District 54 has chosen to provide the optional 5Essentials parent survey.  The parent survey is only 26 questions and the state estimates you can complete it in 10 minutes. The survey is available in English and Spanish.

Schools closed Feb. 2

Posted February 1st, 2015 by Mrs. Hart

All District 54 schools will be closed on Monday, Feb. 2, 2015, due to the weather. All after-school and evening activities are canceled as well.

The decision to close school is not one we make lightly. Our top concern is whether we believe the more than 14,000 students we serve can get to school safely (whether they walk, take a bus or ride in a car).

District 54 makes every effort to keep our schools open, but circumstances beyond our control (such as today’s blizzard) sometimes dictate that we close. Thank you for your understanding and support. The decision to close schools is made one day at a time.

Good evening,

We hope everyone is doing well and enjoyed the sunshine today. Please take a few minutes to read the following updates:

Kindergarten Registration:

Kindergarten registration for the 2015-16 school year will be held on February 12th .  Registration will take place at Collins from 9:00 – 11:00, 1:00 – 2:30 and 6:00 -8:00.  Please check the district website at http://sd54.org/registration for the types of documentation needed for registration. We will also be having an informational meeting on Wednesday, February 18th at 6:30 pm for parents interested in knowing more about the structure of full day kindergarten. If you have friends and neighbors with preschool age children, please share with them these important dates.

 

PARCC Update:

Third- through eighth-grade students throughout Illinois will be taking the PARCC assessment for the first time this spring. The PARCC assessment replaces the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT).

 

Last week, District 54 requested and received approval from the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) to move to a traditional paper and pencil administration of the PARCC assessment for this school year. While District 54 has fully aligned our technology infrastructure to ISBE’s specifications, results from field testing conducted in mid-January have left District 54 with strong concerns regarding the reliability of the PARCC online assessment. We witnessed multiple errors during field testing including answers to assessment items changing without being prompted, drop-down menus failing to function and videos accompanying test items failing to load. These technology issues are not on District 54’s end. They can only remedied by PARCC.

 

District 54’s staff has worked diligently to prepare our students with rigorous instruction to provide them with the skills needed for success. We feel strongly that assessment of our student’s knowledge and skills must be done in the most reliable format possible.

 

The PARCC Performance Based Assessment (PBA) window will now be from March 9 to 20, 2015. As the testing window approaches, I will share more information regarding the logistics of the PARCC testing window. In the meantime, please contact me directly if you have any questions.

Dear Collins Community,

 

It was wonderful to see so many families this week during conferences. Our students worked hard to prepare for these conferences and I am sure impressed all with how they were able to reflect on their goals and at times create new goals and action steps.  We truly value this time to connect with our families and discuss recent successes as well as future goals.

 

Science Fair Date Change:

We are very excited to see all the amazing proposals for this year’s Science Fair.  Please note that we have changed the date of the Science Fair to Tuesday, February 24th.  The proposals are now due on Friday, January 23rd.  All new packets and information have been updated to reflect this change.  We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this change has caused.

 

5Essentials Survey :

As a way to continuously improve, District 54 has chosen to provide the optional 5Essentials parent survey.  The parent survey is only 26 questions and the state estimates you can complete it in 10 minutes. The survey is available in English and Spanish.  If you have more than one child at a school, you should complete only one survey for that school.

To take the parent survey, please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ between Jan. 12 and March 13, 2015.  Please see the attached letters for more information.

 

Note from the PTA regarding spirit wear :

Thank you to those of you who ordered Spirit Wear this year.  Unfortunately, I know many of you were upset- myself included- about some of the sweatshirts being extremely small compared to what size they were supposed to be.  After several calls, e-mails and measurements, I’m happy to tell you the company will exchange them for anyone who wants to do so.  However, this is only for the small and medium sizes.  It turns out the ones we received are not up to the company’s specifications.  Both the hoodies and zip-ups should be about 2-3 inches longer in the sleeves and torsos. I’ve been told the replacements should be bigger at the same sizes we ordered, but- if you want to order up a size you can do so.  To be clear, this is only for anyone who ordered a small or medium sweatshirt.  If you want to exchange, please return it to the office in a bag, clearly marked with your child’s name, room number and what size you want- ideally on your order form or just a slip of paper.  I will be collecting them until next Wednesday, January 21st.    Thanks again to those of you who reached out and for your patience on getting the issues resolved!  Feel free to contact me with any questions.   Bridget Minogue    (847)924-9075  Biddy33@comcast.net

 

Drop-Off Concerns:

As the weather has gotten colder and we have gotten more snow, we have noticed many more parents dropping students off in the morning and picking them up in the afternoon.  Therefore, I wanted to remind everyone of the procedures we have put into place in order to keep our students safe.  The parking lot during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal is closed to all vehicles except our busses and day care vehicles.  This is in an effort to minimize moving traffic within the parking lot as children are walking up to school.   Thank you all of being mindful of the posted signs in our immediate area. During morning kindergarten dismissal at 11:10 AM we have noticed several people parking along the West parking lot curb closest to Summit.  This is a fire lane and therefore not a legal place to park.  Please do not park in this area when picking up your morning kindergarten student.  Thank you in advance for adhering to our procedures in an effort to keep every child safe.

 

 

Enjoy the three day weekend!
