Good afternoon –
We have had a wonderful week back! The students came back looking well rested and ready to learn. Our Collins Variety Show is tonight starting at 6:30 PM in the Mead gymnasium. Please see the latest edition of the Collins Clips attached along with some important information below.4-4-14 Collins Clips
Last Day of School:
Since the last day of school will be a full day this year (8:40-3:00 PM), all kindergarten and PPP students will attend their regularly scheduled sessions as well. The School Board approved the amended calendar last night so June 5th will be the last day of school this year.
Spring MAP Testing:
The window for spring MAP testing will be April 21st – May 9th. Once we have finalized our MAP testing schedule, we will send it out so you are aware of specific days your student(s) will be testing.
5Essentials Parent Survey:
As a reminder, parents can log on to http://Illinois.5-essentials.org and can take a survey for each school where you have a child (early childhood through high school). However, the state does ask that only one parent per household take the survey. When searching for your school, remember to look up the full name (for example, look under M for Michael Collins Elementary). We would like as many of our parents to take this survey as possible. If we can assist you in any way, please let us know. Computers will be made available if you would like to take the survey at school. Parents can take the survey anytime from now until April 25, 2014. We thank you in advance for your feedback.
