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.
We set a goal for students to read 180,000 pages in 180 days and they have surpassed that goal and haven't stopped! I'm beaming with pride!
District #48 Registration Packets for the 2016-2017 school year were mailed out Friday, March 18, 2016. Please watch for this paperwork to arrive. All forms must be filled out in their entirety (front and back) and fees must be paid by April 29th in order to complete the registration process.
Students have been doing an incredible job reading and bringing their reading cards to the office. I am so proud of them! I can't wait to see how many pages they will read after our all school Read In on March 16th!
Swartz students are absolutely amazing! We set a goal of 180,000 pages and they met it! They are still reading like crazy too! This was our first year counting pages instead of books and we love it! Students are so motivated and continue to come to the office to turn in their cards and get special charms. I will keep you posted on their progress! Check out Miss 180,000's picture!
The wonderful students at Swartz are working hard to achieve their goal of reading 180,000 pages! Mr. 120,000 Pages made in down to the office on Friday and we moved to another country on the map! I am so proud of our students!
