TCUSD3 Parents - Wee need your help! This is a reminder to participate in the parent survey supplement, part of the Illinois 5Essentials Survey administration. We guarantee that survey responses will never be connected to the identity of you or your child. School reports will only present aggregated information of how parents and students responded as a whole. A parent survey report will be generated if at least 20 percent of parents respond to the survey. While the parent data will not be made public, the parent report will be made available to building principals and Dr. Chris Dougherty and will enable them to make considerations based on the responses given by TCUSD3 parents. Your participation in the parent survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Again, your identity and individual survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. Teachers and 4th through 12th graders throughout Illinois are taking the teacher and student 5Essentials Survey. School-level 5Essentials Reports will be generated if teachers and/or students meet their 50 percent response-rate thresholds. These research-based reports will be sent to schools and districts in March and will also be included in the State School Report Card, released statewide in the fall. Please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ to take the parent survey. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact UChicago Impact Customer Support at 1-866-440-1874 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

A message from Aramark Food Services:
A big thank you to all of our parent volunteers today. We had a lot of fun watching our students spend their Tommy bucks. Expressing gratitude when our young people just do the next right thing is not rocket science. A little encouragement goes a long way. A big thanks to the PBIS team! Character counts!!
Mrs. Foil’s 7th grade class completed a Regions of the World Project called Outside the Box. Students researched a region and completed the project. We had over 60 different regions that were not duplicated.
