Back to School Night will be held on August 25th from 4:30-6:30 pm. We hope to see all of you there.
Our fifth/sixth grade Battle of the Books team won the District Championship! The girls worked so hard and showed all that they had done to prepare for the Battle. We have another trophy to add to the case! Congratulations to Maliha, Meagan, and Angelina!
Our third/fourth grade team came in second place in their competition. Congratulations to Sarah, Rylee and Niko on working so hard to prepare!
The first/second grade team worked well together and were strong competitors in their battle with a third place finish. Great job Stuti, Leilah and Sarah!
You have an opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. The survey identifies five indicators that can lead to important student outcomes, including increased attendance and larger test score gains. Research has shown that schools strong on these indicators are 10 times more likely to improve students learning.
If you do not have access to a computer, you can use one at a local library or call us to schedule a time to take the survey here. The parent survey results will only be generated by the state if at least 30 percent of parents at a school respond to the survey.
Please click on this link to view the Parent Survey letter 2-14 from Superintendent DuRoss for more information.
Please read the attached letter acknowledging the academic gains made by the students at John Muir Literacy Academy. Duckworth
An article about Muir was recently published in the local section of the Chicago Tribune. Here is a link to the article http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/suburbs/schaumburg_hoffman_estates/community/chi-ugc-article-were-kind-of-a-big-deal-2013-05-29,0,1169787.story
