State Welcome Back to School Webinar

The webinar hosted by the Illinois PTA and the ISBE, will begin at 7 p.m.  It will cover what classroom instruction looks like under the continued implementation of the new, more rigorous learning standards in English language arts and math. The Illinois PTA partnered with the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) to distribute Parent Guides for kindergarten through high school to help families understand the new standards.

The webinar will also discuss the rollout of the new Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) system this school year, what these tests look like and the information they will generate about student learning. We also will discuss how parents can build better, more effective relationships with their children's schools. The agency is developing guidance for helping schools create meaningful and productive partnerships with families.

Parents can still register at https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/185876249. Please feel free to share with your school communities, if you have not yet done so.

Opening Day

As I am sure your children have reminded you, school begins on Tuesday, August 19. The K-4 Open Houses are Monday, August 18 in most cases. That information was in an earlier post. Please allow extra time to arrive at school on the first day and be particularly watchful for children who may not be as cautious as they should be in crossing streets.
NBHS and NBMS schedules are available through Power School on the website and K-4 class assignments have been posted at each building.
Bus schedules were sent out early last week. Please review them and remember during the first couple of days, the routes tend to take some time to work themselves out. So try to have your children at their bus stop at least five minutes early and don't be surprised if the bus is a few minutes early or late. If you have bus questions, please contact Patty Moore at 815-765-2655.
