Dear Einstein Community,
It’s been a busy week of learning as we are getting back into routines and schedules a few days off. We want to thank the parents/guardians who came to Student-Led Conferences last week. We had a tremendous turnout; it is so nice to see all our families. Thank you for the continuous help and support you give your child(ren). Einstein would not have the success it has had without your support. Read below for important information and dates for upcoming events.
Schaumburg Parent University – February Classes
Schaumburg Parent University (SPU) is designed to involve more parents in the life of the school, to strengthen family relationships, and to improve parenting skills that will ultimately result in improved student success academically, socially and emotionally. There are three evening programs for parents only scheduled for February in the District 54 Professional Learning Center, 522 E. Schaumburg Road in Schaumburg.
Youth Suicide: A Community Conversation about Awareness and Prevention on Feb. 5
Tell Me More about This New PARCC Assessment on Feb. 10
The In’s and Out’s of the IEP (Individualized Education Program for students with special needs) on Feb. 26
If you are interested in attending these events and would like more information, please select the flyers to the right. Youth Suicide, PARCC, IEPs. Childcare will be available. For more information about Schaumburg Parent University and to register, visit our website by clicking here.
As a way to continuously improve, District 54 has chosen to provide the optional 5Essentials parent survey. The parent survey is only 26 questions and the state estimates you can complete it in 10 minutes. The survey is available in English and Spanish.
If you have more than one child at a school, you should complete only one survey for that school. In addition, only one parent or guardian per household may participate in the survey. Parents with children enrolled in multiple schools may take the survey for each school. Schools are listed alphabetically by their full names (for example Albert Einstein would be listed under A, not E for Einstein).
If at least 20 percent of our parents complete this survey, a parent supplement will be generated. The parent data will not be reported on the State Report Card. Last year, when the number was 30 percent, none of our schools met this target. We are hoping to meet the target this year.
To take the parent survey, please click here between Jan. 12 and March 13, 2015.
