A Letter from Dr. Haack

Dear Townline Families,

I hope that you are enjoying the slightly warmer weather.  Here are some updates from Townline.

Online Report Cards for Trimester 2

In an effort to better streamline our communication with all district families, we are making online report cards available to parents of our elementary school students. Benefits to online report cards include more timely reporting to parents, easy parent access to both current and past report cards, and reduced costs tied to paper and printing. Online report cards are also environmentally friendly! On Tuesday, March 19th we will post student report cards in PowerSchool and share instructions for how you may access your child’s report card via the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Once you log into this secure, user-friendly portal, you may easily open and even download your child’s report card. If you would prefer to receive a paper copy of your child’s report card, please contact our main office at 847.990.4901 and we will print one for you.

Lost and Found

It is that time of year again where our lost and found is overflowing with items.  If you child has lost something, please encourage them to look for it in the lost and found near the cafeteria.  If you would like to search the lost and found for an item, please stop in the main office to check in during school hours. All unclaimed items will be donated over spring break.

Illinois Assessment for Readiness

Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students will be taking the Illinois Assessment for Readiness when we return from spring break (April 2-April 9).  The Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) is the state assessment and accountability measure for Illinois students enrolled in a public school district. IAR assesses the New Illinois Learning Standards Incorporating the Common Core and will be administered in English Language Arts and Mathematics. This assessment takes the place of the previously administered PARCC assessment. It is important that your student be present and on time for these testing dates.  Also, sleep and proper nutrition help the brain to function well.  Please make sure that your child gets enough sleep and eats a healthy breakfast in order to help them do their very best on this assessment.
