Jefferson Elementary School


Weekly Weber Update

January 7, 2019

Dear Jefferson Families,

Welcome Back! I hope everyone had a restful winter break. It was so great to see all of the smiling faces back today. They all looked a little tired this afternoon though, so I am sure there will be some early bed times!

As we return from winter break, teachers will be using the Fountas and Pinnell assessment to gather information on student growth in the area of reading. This assessment was also given in the fall and will be administered in the spring as well. It is a great tool that allows for teachers to see strengths and areas of growth for students in the area of reading.

Kindergarten Registration
Enrollment for incoming kindergarten and new first-grade students will be during the following dates and times. The Tuesday and Wednesday times will be at Jefferson or your home school. The Thursday evening will be at District 205 Center.

The 5Essentials Survey
The statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey is now open for parents to share thoughts about your experiences with our school. This survey provides critical input to help develop school improvement plans. The survey takes about 10 minutes.
