Social Science Curriculum Review Update

As a kick-off for our Social Science Curriculum review, our committee members spent some time learning about what the committee entails and discussing items they would like to see addressed during the review.  Committee members also learned what is currently taught across grade levels and courses, and then began to dive into the Illinois Social Science learning standards.

The District will again use Pick-A-Time to schedule PreK-12 parent-teacher conferences to be held from October 23-25. Like prior years, Pick-A-Time will allow parents to schedule all of their children’s parent-teacher conferences through the internet using the account from last year or by creating a new account.  Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. on September 23, 2019, and will end at 4:30 p.m. on October 22, 2019.

Parents without internet access may still contact their child’s building or teachers directly to set up an appointment.

1st Grade Science Curriculum Update

Hands-on learning is a big part of the new Science curriculum.  Check out some of our first graders as they learned how craters are formed by experimenting with marbles, flour and cocoa powder. Do you know what happens if you drop a marble from a farther distance?
