Churchill News- 9/13/2014

Posted September 14th, 2014 by rmeyer
We had another awesome week here at Churchill! Our students started MAP testing this week and have done a great job working hard to show us what they know.  During this busy week we had bus evacuation practice, Leo’s Learning nights, and picture day. We know everyone left smiling Friday! Thanks to our PTA volunteers who helped out during picture day and met families during Leo’s Learning night.
Thanks to all who came out for Leo’s Learning nights. The staff enjoyed this opportunity get to know so many of our families. It was nice to see our families enjoying math games, investigating websites, practicing reading strategies,  learning about Leo’s Laws, doing science experiments, and so much more. We hope you left with some great learning tools to use at home.
We will continue to administer our fall MAP assessment during the coming week. Results will be analyzed to inform our instructional practice and students will then be given the opportunity to set academic goals for the year based off the data. We will send the results of the fall assessment home prior to our student goal setting conferences with parents which will occur on the 9th and 10th of October.
Other dates to remember:
Run to Read
The annual School District 54 Run to Read will be hosted by Dirksen School on Sunday, September 28th. All profits from this event are used to purchase books for classroom libraries in District 54. It would be great to see some of our Churchill families join us out there that morning! If you would like more information, visit the District 54 website.

We are officially off to a great start at Churchill School.  This week we welcomed our new kindergartners!  Next week, we will begin our first round of Map testing for the 2014-2015 school year.  Students will be reviewing the goals they set for themselves in the spring.

We want to thank all parents for understanding our late dismissal this afternoon.  Students and teachers handled the weather and our unexpected lack of power very well.  Some of our Churchill students were even spotted by teachers on the evening news cleaning up debris.  We hope everyone stayed safe during the storm and has a wonderful weekend.
