Winter Concert Challenge

The West Carroll High School Music Department

 is looking to help spread some holiday cheer.

Last year we started the Winter Concert Challenge.

We had never charged an admission nor asked for

a donation before to attend any of our concerts. In these

times of uncertainty we know there are those who

struggle to make ends meet on a daily basis and

there is certainly nothing left over for any extras.

So again this year the West Carroll Music Boosters

are challenging the music students and

their parent/guardians to help make someone else’s

holiday a little brighter.

We are challenging everyone who attends our Winter Concert
 
on Tuesday, December 6, 6:30 PM in the WCHS Gymnasium
 
to bring canned goods/non-perishable items and/or a new,
 
unwrapped toy that we can donate

to the local food pantry and the Toys for Tots program.

 In return the West Carroll Music Boosters will

make equal donations of the same.

Please consider being a part of our Winter Concert Challenge

and bring your donation(s) to our Concert.

Thanks for your continued support!

 5Essentials Survey

Dear Parent,

 Beginning November 16, students, teachers and parents across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in the fourth annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school.

 On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. The survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. These five indicators that affect and predict school success are:

 ·         Effective Leaders

·         Collaborative Teachers

·         Involved Families

·         Supportive Environments

·         Ambitious Instruction

 Prior research in more than 400 schools has shown that schools that were strong on at least three of these “5Essential” indicators were 10 times more likely to improve student learning gains in math and reading than those that were weak on three or more Essentials.

 All teachers and 6th through 12th grade students will be responding to this survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated for schools if their teachers and/or students meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent. These reports will be sent to schools and districts in March 2017 and will also be included in the State School Report Card.

 Additionally, your district has chosen to provide the optional 5Essentials parent survey. If at least 20 percent of West Carroll CUSD 314 parents complete this survey, a parent supplement will also be generated. The parent data will not be reported on the State Report Card.

 Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. 

 The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be conducted November 16 through January 16, 2017. To take the survey please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/  and select the appropriate survey to begin.

 For more information about the Illinois 5Essentials Survey, or to view previous years’ Reports, please visit https://illinois.5-essentials.org. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact 5Essentials Client Services at 1-866-440-1874 or 5essentials@uchicago.edu.

Sincerely,

Adam Brumbaugh
