Jefferson "Tiger News"


November 12, 2018

Dear Jefferson Families,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. At our PTA meeting, tomorrow at 8:30am, I will be presenting Standards Based Reporting as well as a quick overview as to how to access the report cards online. If you cannot attend the PTA meeting, I will also be hosting 2 informational meetings during conferences; November 19th at 3:45pm and November 20th at 11:00am in the Multi-purpose room to review Standards Based Reporting.

The Parent-Teacher Conference Sign-up online has closed. If you have not yet scheduled a conference, please contact the office and they will be able to schedule it for you.

Please make sure to not enter the staff parking lots between drop off or pick up. In order to ensure student safety, it is important that there are no cars entering the lots. There is parking on Poplar Ave., Linden Ave., as well as on Crescent Ave before and past the school. Thank you for your cooperation in making these areas safe for our students. 

Thanksgiving Feast
Our Thanksgiving Feast will be from 11:05-12:05 on Thursday, November 15th. This is a PTA sponsored event that allows for all Jefferson students to have lunch together and celebrate what a wonderful community we have at Jefferson. Students will have a Thanksgiving style lunch that is provided by the D205 Food Services department. Volunteer sign-up is through the PTA, please know that only volunteers that have signed up will be allowed in the gym as it is a very busy day.     

Accessing Your Child’s Standards Based Report (SBR) Card for Trimester 1 - As you know Elmhurst Elementary School District 205 has made changes to the way we teach and report student progress. By now we should all be aware that we are using Standards Based Reporting meaning that we are teaching Illinois State Standards and measuring student progress on those standards with four categories;
4 – Exceeds the Standard
3 – Proficient with the Standard
2 – Approaching the Standard
1 – Beginning the Standard
Also new this year is the way parents can access their child’s SBR for the first trimester. Your child’s report card will be available for viewing after 3:00 PM on Friday, November 16. You will be able to print your child’s report card if you choose. Additionally, your child’s teacher will have a printed copy available during conferences.  If you do not have access to a computer, please contact our office and we’ll be happy to print a copy for you.
Below you will find the instructions to retrieve your student(s) report cards:

  1. Sign in to PowerSchool
  2. Under the Navigation pane select Report Cards
  3. After you select Report Cards, a list of available report cards will appear

Square One Art
Jefferson’s 4th Annual Square One Art fundraiser is just around the corner. Turn your child’s artwork into great keepsakes and help raise money for our school. Please look for the order form in your child’s backpack.
There are 3 easy ways to order:
2. Call 888-332-3294
3. Use the paper order form attached to your child’s catalog
Deadline for paper orders is November 19th 

Incoming 6th Grade Meetings
