Teacher Appreciation Week runs from Monday May 2 through Friday May 5, 2016. Please join us in thanking our teaching staff for their hard work with our District 48 students!
As with all school districts in Illinois, Salt Creek School District 48 will be engaged in the annual state mandated achievement testing program (PARCC-Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) in April and May, 2016. All students in grades 3-8 will take these tests in the areas of English/Language Arts and Mathematics. Our "window" for these assessments is April 4 - May 13, 2016, so SMS and AMS have their own specific schedules for the assessments that they will make families aware of. Students at SCS do not take these assessments. The testing format has changed from two testing periods in 2015 to just one in 2016, and all testing is done online. We receive the results of our assessments as part of the School Report Card that comes out in the fall. If you have questions about the PARCC, please contact the SMS, AMS or District Office.

District 48 will conduct a free developmental screening of children age 3 to 5 years at Salt Creek Primary School, 980 Riverside Drive, Elmhurst, IL, on March 18, 2016. Children must live in the district, but not be currently enrolled in kindergarten.

The screening process identifies how the child is currently developing. Assessed areas include: speech and language, fine motor skills, social/emotional development, and pre-readiness skills.
The screening is conducted by professional school staff. The screening takes approximately 60 minutes. Screening results are shared with parents within a week of the screening.
