District 105 Announcements
EARLY CHILDHOOD SCREENING SET FOR DISTRICT 105
School District 105, which serves the south LaGrange, Hodgkins, and Countryside communities, will be hosting a preschool screening for children ages 3 -5 years old on Tuesday, February 21st from 8:30 am-2:00 pm, at the Hodgkins Park District in Hodgkins. The screening takes about one hour and requires an appointment. Parents must schedule a time to be screened by calling 708-482-2760. A team of professionals from the district will assess each childs development in the areas of large and fine motor skills, pre-academic readiness, speech/language, vision and hearing. 

The screening will help identify children who may qualify for one of the free district preschool programs, or those who would benefit from additional services prior to entering Kindergarten. 

Children who are currently enrolled in a District Preschool Program (ECE, Early Learning or Preschool for All) do not need to be screened. 

If you know of a child in the District 105 area who would benefit from these services, please share this information with their family.
Parent Survey for 2016-17/ Encuesta de los Padres para el 2016-17
This year District 105 will be administering a state-required parent survey entitled, 5Essentials: Organizing Schools for Improvement.  This short survey focuses on five areas that affect school success: leadership, collaboration, family involvement, school environment, and instruction.  I strongly encourage you to complete the survey as your feedback will provide us with critical information to assess how well we are serving our students and progressing toward our school and district goals.
 
The survey is designed to take approximately 10 minutes to complete and can only be completed online.  Parents who have children enrolled in more than one school will be asked to complete a survey for each school. The deadline for completing the 5Essentials parent survey is January 30, 2017.

PTO Meeting - February 7th, 6:30pm
5th/6th grade Battle of the Books - Tuesday, February 7th 9:45-10:30
Each district elementary school is holding a "Battle of the Books" for interested 5th and 6th grade students. Students have already signed up and created teams of 4.  We have 8 teams participating at 7th Avenue School. The students in the top three teams will go on to participate in the district battle of the books, which will be held at Gurrie Middle School on Friday, March 17th, at 10:00.  

For the students going on to participate in the district battle, "super teams" will be created that consist of 4 students, one from each elementary school.  There are 2 main purposes to the Battle of the Books:  1) To enjoy reading the books and interacting with others in a fun atmosphere and 2) to create unity across the district and allow students to meet their some of the future Gurrie Middle School classmates.
